Closest to the ocean, the Litoral vineyard is characterized by calcareous soil facing the ocean. The cool and quite windy climate imparts high tannin maturity and exceptional fruit character.
Moderately dark color with a bright red rim (bodes well for aging). Aromas of cherry and red berry with hints of cool climate cranberry framed in wisps of smoky peat hearth fire. Flavors are bright, with firm acid structure supporting the same fruit tones perceptible in the aroma—very persistent! Finish lingers with long, late acid backbone carrying the red berry late into the aftertaste.
Enjoy with Fish, white meats, pastas, salads and risotto
Third Party Reviews
From San Antonio, this Pinot Noir is aged for 16 months in used French oak and offers aromas of rose petals, earth, mushrooms and red fruit. Chalky in texture, the freshness is well balanced by the satisfying complexity. Score 92, Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2020
