2013 Pinot Noir Coast Grade Vineyard

Coast Grade Vineyard

 A delicate fruit profile and strong mineral backbone from limestone-based alluvial soils combine beautifully with notes of earth to make wines that are distinctly Coast Grade. The vineyard is perched literally at the fog line, enabling cool, foggy mornings and evenings ideal for long-hang time, thereby increasing the complexity and typicity of the resulting Pinot Noir.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2013 Coast Grade has a bright ruby red core with garnet and pink hues on the rim. The nose exhibits aromas of dried strawberries, wild raspberries, rose petal candy, exotic spices, wet moss, and black tea with a kiss of new oak. The palate is slightly more with flavors of tart cherry, cranberry, pomegranate and layers of spicy flavors of green tea and new french oak. This wine, just like the regular Santa Cruz Pinot Noir, needs time to integrate. Ideally wait until 2017 to drink. (Drink 2017-2023 - 60 to 65F - Burgundy Stems)
Ratings
Planet Grape: 93 Points - Soft, delicate, inviting and zippy with notes of cranberry, raspberry, currant, root beer, white rose and sea shell.
Vineyard Notes
Coast Grade Vineyard, located in Bonny Doon, California is owned and farmed by Jim Beauregard. Planted in 2008, the 17 acre vineyard sits at an elevation of 1,238 to 1,350 feet on a southwest facing slope. Monterey Bay influences combine with sandy loam soil and underlaying limestone to produce wines with minerality and striking acidity.
