A serendipitous wine, resulting from single vineyard selections made to bolster the historic frost damage sustained in the Paso Robles appellation, and specifically to our Estate HMR Pinot Noir.  Fruit was sourced from just a few rows of the full 200 acre Santa Lucia property, and is based on a variety of clonal attributions: Pommard 5, 777 and Calera.  The site sits between 300-600 ft. elevation, in the southern half of the Highlands, above the marine layer and slopes southeast offering full sun exposure throughout the day. 

Planted in 2002 on ancient alluvial rocky, well draining soils, “The Doctor’s” experiences an extremely long growing season due to the coastal influence of nearby Monterey bay.  The unusually cool growing season of 2011 proved challenging for many varieties, but ideal for Pinot Noir.  Harvested in the last week of September the wine shows the bolder fruit signature of its Highland location with the classic ripe cherry imprint. Very forthcoming for a young vintage, the wine is immediately accessible and should be enjoyed now through 2016.
