A cool start to the season brought on slow, even ripening. Warm days followed with very few heat spikes allowing the grapes to ripen while maintaining bright, fresh, clean fruit flavors. A majority of these grapes were sourced from Santa Lucia Highlands AVA of Monterey County. Here, the cooler temperatures make for bright red fruit flavors and well-structured tannins. A small portion of blend is sourced from the warmer climates in Los Carneros and Napa Valley, contributing lush, jammy berry flavors with depth and complexity. We chose our harvest dates to optimize each vineyard’s best state of ripeness and produce a delicious, layered and balanced wine. 14.5% alcohol.
Z. Alexandre Brown Pinot Noir
Sourced from multiple growing regions, this Pinot Noir expresses bright red fruit from Sonoma County, a nice acidity from Monterey for exceptional balance and mouthfeel and signature spice and concentration from Napa County. The end result lends smooth, silky tannins, beautiful fruit flavors and an elegant finish.
