Sultry aromas of black plum, violet, lava rocks, smoke, caramelized beef, forest floor and star anise draw the nose into this hearty, well-rounded wine. There is both vibrant energy and tannic grip to the palate, with dense, dark cranberry, tangy fruit skins, a touch of vanilla and a minty fennel element on the finish.

Vineyard Notes

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

Sierra Mar
Translates to “mountain sea” in English, a fitting name for a site that represents the best of extreme mountain coastal terroir.

High-Altitude Vineyard
Site with decomposed granite and gravelly loam soils

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet in color, Sierra Mar showcases spiced oak laced with cedar, pepper, fenugreek and ripe pomegranate on the nose. The palate is very dense with flavors of ripe red fruit accented by bergamot, crushed granite and savory notes. The finish is powerful and dense - this wine transforms with time in the glass.

    I love SLH Pinots!

    So rich in earth and red fruit. This pairs great with the roast turkey I just had. Can't wait to buy more before it's sold out! I agree with the 94 points! Love it!
