2017 Solomon Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir
Santa Maria Valley
Solomon Hills Vineyards has provided ideal growing conditions that has allowed its Pinot Noir vines to thrive and consistently produce high quality fruit. With the Pacific coastline only miles away, a constant maritime influence results in wines of crisp acidity, bright fruit and an inherent balance.
The Solomon Hills Pinot Noir begins with wonderful aromas of strawberry, black cherry and red plum. The palate draws you in with a soft entry of strawberry, while the mid palate is filled with ground anise and the crescendo finish delights your entire mouth with the perfect level of acidity and flavor. Or winemaker believes this wine and the vineyards it comes from are a fine orchestra and he is merely the humble conductor, he lets the grapes speak for themselves.
