Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard 2011 Pinot Noir

Branciforte Vineyard

Branciforte Creek Vineyard is located on Jarvis Road in the Vine Hill area of the Santa Cruz Mountains, just a mile away from our well-known Estate Vineyard on the same road. The vines were planted in 1988 in a site that originally had grapes since 1863. This vineyard has low yields of very flavorful fruit year after year. This vineyard represents the best of “old school” Pinot Noir, before all of those cola-cherry focused “modern” clones became so popular. This vineyard is Pommard Clone, a clone that results in a more traditional, Burgundian take on the variety. You don’t just get lots of cherry/berry fruit – you get all kinds of intriguing back flavors and aromas.

Santa Cruz Mountains

Blackberry and dark cherry aromatics on the nose are accented with a hint of toasted coconut and vanilla. On the palate, the dark fruits combine with subtle earthiness. The mouth feel is silky and smooth with a long clean finish.
