2021 York Mountain Pinot Noir

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"These historic Pinot Noir vines from the Carver Vineyard find a happy home in winemaker Jason Joyce's hands. Dark, spicy aromas of black plum, mace and nutmeg flow into a bold, oak-accented palate of berry and vanilla flavors, with just enough acidity to work." Matt Kettmann


Located between the Santa Lucia Highlands to the North and the Santa Rita Hills to the South, York Mountain is an obvious but overlooked location for growing Pinot Noir. We luckily farm one of only a handful of Pinot Noir vineyards in the AVA and feel this wine is a true rare gem. Expressing elements of cool climates, this wine is a must experience for those that love Pinot.

Tasting Notes
Distinctive ruby colored with the unmistakable Pinot Noir nose of strawberry, cola nut and earthy truffles and mushrooms. A light, sprightly-bodied initial palate shows a mix of raspberry, black currant and fall spices. The whole cluster fermentation shows up with back end tannins that add refined structure and a lingering finish with just a hint of toasty French Oak. A true workhorse of a pairing wine, easily complimenting the range from cedar planked salmon to beef Bolognese over burrata raviolis.
