Wow, the inky opaque colored 2014 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard is a sensational Pinot Noir. Giving up tons of black raspberry, cassis, toasty oak, crushed violets and campfire aromas and flavors, this youthful, even backwards effort has fabulous richness and depth, a layered texture and ripe tannin that emerges on the finish. This is a big, rich Pinot Noir...

The wine brims with a spicy vinous character, shaded by accents of ripe strawberry, warm raspberry compote and freshly cultivated earth. Soft and lush on the palate, the wine’s supple texture gives way to a lengthy finish buoyed by chewy tannins.

The iconic Clos Pepe vineyard is situated in a cool enclave within the Sta. Rita Hills. The prevailing winds coming from the Pacific slow the ripening of these vines, allowing for saturated flavors to accumulate throughout the decidedly long growing season.

Vintage NotesVintage 2014 was early and warm, providing winemakers time to patiently allow the vines to usher all components of flavor and texture. Small berries, which have a higher skin to juice ratio, informs a wine of greater concentrations of flavor and richness. We harvest in the cool hours preceding daybreak to preserve the delicate subtleties within each berry.
