Chamisal 'Califa Selection' Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

750 ML


Product Description

The bouquet of our 2008 Califa Pinot presents a heady swirl of fresh strawberry and blackberry fruit, accented by complex notes of tangerine zest and cedar. The palate is even more generous, with a creamy mouthfeel and abundance of fresh red fruit that melds into lingering flavors of dark spice and citrus through the expansive finish.


Varietal: Pinot Noir

Region: Edna Valley

Region Description:

Edna Valley is directly south of the coastal town of San Louis Obispo. The region was gained recognition in the 1970's for its chardonnay. Gew├╝rztraminer and pinot noir have been planted as well but the results have not been as rewarding as the chardonnay. Low hills on three sides give the valley an open cup shape that collects moisture laden air from the Pacific Ocean. The cool, steady temperatures and fog cover result in a very long growing season producing very unique wine.
