Byron Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2013
Save $7.00 (25%)
The Santa Maria Valley is located on an unusual topographic slice of land known as a transverse range. Unlike the majority of California's wine producing valleys, the orientation is east to west rather than north to south. As a consequence, an unprecedented amount of marine air and accompanying fog is pulled into the vineyards from the nearby Pacific Ocean. The unimpeded flow of cold air from the Pacific Ocean makes our appellation unique.

EnRoute Les Pommiers Pinot Noir 2014The 2014 vintage marked another early harvest for EnRoute, beginning eight days earlier than the previous year. Budbreak was 15 days ahead of schedule, and ideal growing conditions throughout the season led to a bountiful crop. The warm days and mild nights allowed for grapes with rich color, abundant tannins, and intense aromas and flavors; we knew early on that the 2014 vintage had remarkable potential just from tasting the fruit. All vineyards were harvested at peak maturity, capturing the best of each vineyard, block and clone. We started picking in the warmest, northernmost vineyard on August 21st, then finished five weeks later in our coolest vineyard in Green Valley.
MacMurray Ranch Central Coast Pinot Noir 2014Deep ruby in color, our MacMurray Estate Vineyards Central Coast Pinot Noir opens with delicate notes of black cherry, raspberry and pomegranate, accented by a distinct spice character that typifies Olson Ranch. Velvety soft tannins meld with ripe red fruit flavors to create a smooth mouthfeel and long finish.
Block Nine Caiden's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015Our family started Block Nine in response to changes in the Pinot Noir market. Demand for moderately priced Pinot Noir has spiked over the last few years. Large, mass marketed brands brought most of the Pinot to the market leaving consumers with few choices of smaller production Pinot Noir from California.
