Nielson Pinot Noir 2015, Santa Maria Valley
The Santa Maria Valley-of Santa Barbara County- is one of California’s coolest AVAs, with one of the longest growing seasons in the world. The region is defined by its well-drained, lean soils and the unique east/west transverse mountain ranges that act as a funnel for morning fog and cold afternoon winds off the Pacific Ocean, resulting in balanced, vibrant wines, full of earth, spice, red fruit and floral aromatics. Each vineyard, block, and clone were separated in the winemaking process to best maximize each lot’s distinctive character. The goal is to best express the complexity of Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir which delivers notes of dark cherry, cinnamon and camp fire. The 2014 Nielson Pinot Noir, Santa Maria Valley has notes of red fruit and violets accompanied by a distinctive earthiness, indicative of its Santa Maria Valley sourcing.
