Nearing 50 years of age, Adelaida’s 35 acres of historic Pinot Noir vines are situated in a rare mountain microclimate in the folds of the Santa Lucia Mountain range, 14 miles from the ocean. A brilliant magenta color, with a bit of aeration, the young wine develops an aromatic note of savory rhubarb and freshly brewed tea. The knit texture and delicate flavors of ripe cherry and subtle sandalwood incense smoke, spice-like flavors of nutmeg and allspice showcase classic varietal characteristic. Drink now or hold until 2016. Unfined, unfiltered.
