2005 Pinot Noir - Branciforte Creek Vineyard
Santa Cruz Mountains

Branciforte Creek Vineyard is located on Jarvis Road in the Vine Hill area of the Santa Cruz Mountains, just a mile away from our well-known Estate Vineyard on the same road. The vines were planted in 1988 in a site that originally had grapes since 1863. This vineyard has low yields of very flavorful fruit year after year.

This vintage is unusually complex and explodes aromatically for such a young wine. There are many different layers of fruit and spice that continue to expand as the wine interacts with the air.

In the mouth it is equally expansive with just the right amount of acidity to carry all those layers of fruit across your tongue. There is a long finish of Pinot Noir fruit along with some dry leaf and floral elements.
