2006 Lea Turner Vineyard Pinot Noir
It was clear from the moment this fruit arrived that it was going make great wine. Not that we should have expected any less given this vineyard’s ideal location in the Santa Rita Hills appellation. The berries were tiny, dark, and sweet with just the right streak of acid. The juice that flowed from our tiny basket press 14 days later was complex and pure. This wine shines with notes of plums, blackberries, and raspberries. It is earthy and spicy with a silky, rounded mouthfeel and a long, layered finish. While this Pinot Noir drinks beautifully now, it will be exciting to watch it evolve over the next 6 to 8 years.
