Wow, the inky opaque colored 2014 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard is a sensational Pinot Noir. Giving up tons of black raspberry, cassis, toasty oak, crushed violets and campfire aromas and flavors, this youthful, even backwards effort has fabulous richness and depth, a layered texture and ripe tannin that emerges on the finish. This is a big, rich Pinot Noir...
The iconic Clos Pepe vineyard is situated in a cool enclave within the Sta. Rita Hills. The prevailing winds from the Pacific slow the ripening of these vines, allowing for flavors to accumulate throughout the growing season.

Vineyard Notes

Central Coast AVA
Roughly 250 miles along the coastline of California from Santa Barbara County to San Francisco County

Sta. Rita Hills
Follows a clearly defined maritime “throat” that ushers in the Pacific fog and constant cooling breezes.

Sandy Loam Soils
Cause vines to produce grapes with powerful varietal character

Tasting Notes
The wine brims with a spicy vinous character, shaded by accents of ripe strawberry, warm raspberry compote and freshly cultivated earth. Soft and lush on the palate, the wine’s supple texture gives way to a lengthy finish buoyed by chewy tannins.

  • Ripe Strawberry
