J. McFarland, River Road Vineyard, SLH Pinot Noir was harvested at 22% Brix, with alcohol at 12.5%, this is a superb example of a Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir. French oak fermented and aged, it is probably one of the finest burgundy-like Pinot Noris in California; winemaker Jeff Emery doesn’t believe in making jammy Pinot Noirs…but instead produces elegant and refined wines like a true Burgundy. The 2011 and 2012 sold out in a big hurry…so when you see it, buy it!
Sourced from the cold region 1 River Road Vineyard in the fog-shrouded northern section of the Santa Lucia Highlands, this brut sparkler displays crisp brightness with orange blossom bouquet, with a hint of lemongrass and creamy vanilla. It is well balanced with a clean finish on the palate and will enhance any meal or celebration.
