2018 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 - "This bottling begins with aromas of raspberry, cranberry, hibiscus, sumac and sandalwood, while the palate picks up herbal and woody flavors alongside a crisp red-plum core."
