(1 Case / 12 Bottles) 2018 Backstage Pinot Noir Central Coast

  • Quantity: 12 Bottles

TASTING NOTES

A beautiful hue ruby, this 2018 Pinot Noir has vibrant aromas of ripe berry fruit, plum, black cherry, and cool herbs. Hints of cedar offer an airiness to the wonderful aromatics. There is good weight throughout the palate and the wine offers a light impression of chalky minerals that are overlaid with berry fruits, and hints of elderberry.

WINEGROWING NOTES

Planted in 1982 on an east-west axis, our Central Coast Pinot Noir's 40-acre vineyard is located on the west side of the Santa Maria Valley. The prevalent fog and ocean breeze make this growing region ideal for this opulent wine; however, the warmer day temperatures allow for a more fruit forward finish on the nose and for the pallet. We aged this wine for 6 months in French oak barrels, highlighting a more elegant finish with moderate tannins and a crisp acid balance. The extraction of color and tannins throughout the primary fermentation help richen the wine for the 6 month oak barrel aging. The 667 Clone was used for a phenomenal Pinot Noir.

2018 VINTAGE

It can be argued that 2018 was the best quality year the Central Coast has ever experienced. The extra month of hang time (on average) allowed for some serious color and flavor development.
