Type: Red Wine
Grape: Pinot Noir
Winemaker Kenny Likitprakong's Santa Cruz County Pinot Noir is all about the terroir of Santa Cruz and its ethereal style of Pinot Noir. Kenny farms his grapes organically and cultivates, prunes, and harvests by hand. He makes the wine without commercial yeast, malolactic bacteria, or any other commercial additives. He ages it in neutral French oak barrels and concrete eggs, with a small percentage of new oak. He adds very little or no sulfur to the wine and bottles it without fining or filtration.
Aromas of strawberry, cranberry, and spice over dark black cherry and blackberry. The palate is rich, with notes of ripe forest berries and earth, and a lengthy finish.
