SDIWC 93 Pts (Platinum award San Diego International Wine Competition) -
Winemaker Notes - A case can be made that there are a host of stellar Pinot Noir growing regions in California, and many believe that no region is more distinctive than the Central Coast and the Santa Lucia Highlands where much Pinot Noir is featured. Cooling maritime inuence that creeps over the Gabilan mountain range each afternoon from Monterey Bay is Pinot’s best friend. This expression, the rst Hess Select sourced from a combination of our own vineyards alongside grower partners, shows the Central Coast personality quite well. Darker toned fruit led by ripe plum and rich cherry dominate both aromas and avors, with a noticeable earthiness instantly recognizable as Santa Lucia Highlands inuenced. Sweet on entry, soft on the nish, there are spicy oak accents and well balanced, well managed tannins that leave you ready for a second look and a second glass." 14.5% ABV.
