2012 Spring Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir (1 X 750 ML)
Spring Hill Vineyard is located in the Petaluma Gap, 30 miles north of the city of San Francisco and 15 miles from the cool Pacific Ocean. The vineyard slopes from an elevation of 445 feet to 520 feet above sea level. To maximize the sun exposure during the daylight hours, the vines were planted to a true north/south orientation. Evening fog and winds cool down the vineyards at night, creating a beneficial temperature range difference that aids in developing intense fruitful flavors, while maintaining bright acidic balance in the Pinot Noir grapes grown here.
Aromas of mixed red berry compote seasoned with ginger, brown sugar, and vanilla gently arise from the glass. The vibrant palate interplays the balance of loganberry, chocolate and Montmorency cherries and is sustained by a firm finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
