Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
APPEARANCE: Brilliant ruby and garnet color AROMA: Cherry tart, dried cranberries, subtle oak and vanilla notes. PALATE: Balanced acid, lingering soft tannins, tart cherry and vanilla
Production Notes
The harvest of 2016 was nearly ideal. No frost events in spring and generally seasonal weather with some well-timed heat spells to aid in ripening the grapes. In September, the temperatures made big swings from night and day which lengthened the hang time on the vines and resulted in very balanced wines with crisp acidity and mild tannins.
Winemaker Notes
This Whale Rock Pinot Noir has a cherry red hue. Its aroma is filled with ripe cherries complemented with sweet spice and oak aromas. Delicate tannins tie in with a lean crisp body and clean fruit that hold in the finish. Good intensity of aromas and flavors. A standout in typicity of a Paso Robles Pinot Noir.
