2017 Fossil Point Pinot Noir Edna Valley
Winemaker Notes: Fossil Point pays tribute to this bond between sea and vine. Located less than five miles due west of their winery, Fossil Point is a rugged headland with sweeping views of the coastline from Port San Luis to the Guadalupe Dunes. Standing on Fossil Point, you can enjoy the same ocean breezes that are on their way to the vineyards, where they will guide the vines to perfect ripeness.
In the Edna Valley, on California's Central Coast, the vines are never far from the influence of the sea. Sunny afternoons yield daily to brisk marine breezes, and the growing season is directly shaped by the seasonal flow of the currents and surface temperature of the nearby Pacific Ocean. Even Fossil Point's soils of calcareous shale and coarse sand were uplifted from the ancient ocean floor and weathered into place over the millennia.
Wine Enthusiast - "Aromas of boysenberry, dried mint and lavender show on the nose of this bottling, which is crafted by the Center of Effort team. The palate is fresh in floral and dark fruit flavors that ride the steadily rising acidity into the finish. "
