2017 Holtermann Vineyard Pinot Noir
The 2.56-acre Holtermann Vineyard, located just north of Annapolis, CA (population 200) and five miles inland from the captivating Sea Ranch coastal community, is truly farming on the edge. Its proximity to the ocean moderates daily high temperatures and diurnal fluctuations, leading to consistent seasons and slow, balanced fruit development.
Taste: This vintage is dark, muscular, and taunt. Yet, it maintains a nuanced lightness on its feet as it speaks of conifer, anise and black cassis emitting from a core of violets and rose petals soaked brined in licorice.
