2017 Pinot Noir
HMR Estate Vineyard
Heart and Soul of Adelaida
Pinot Noir is the heart and soul of our winemaking quest. Rarely found in the warm Paso Robles AVA, our 33 acre site overcomes the conventional wisdom of inappropriateness. Its coastal mountain microclimate and affinity for the indigenous limestone are precursors of its potential for nobility.
This vintage of Pinot Noir shows a wonderful array of bright red fruits and earthy tones. Bing cherries, raspberry and dried cranberries mingle with hints of California sagebrush, wet river rock, and Poricini mushroom. The balance of alcohol and acid is tied together by the mild tannin structure that will allow for easy drinking now. Enjoy through 2023.
