Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy the 2016 Pinot Noir with herb-roasted chicken, cider-glazed pork tenderloin, and duck breast in red wine mushroom sauce.
The 2016 Pinot Noir offers effusive aromas of dried cherry, plum, cedar, violets and forest floor. The texture is broad yet bright, unfolding with rounded flavors of plum, cranberry, wildberry and sage. Lively acidity sets the tone on a clean, evenhanded finish.
Block 33 is tucked right against the peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountains, in the path of what is known as the Trout Creek Drainage—a natural channel carved into the mountain flanks by eons of erosion. As coastal fog rolls inland from Morro Bay and begins to spill over the peaks, it first rolls down this channel and right through block 33, making it the coldest spot in the vineyard. The result is a rarity: a varietally true and truly coastal Pinot Noir from Paso Robles.
