Thomas Fogarty Pinot Noir 2013, Santa Cruz Mountains
The Thomas Fogarty Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2013 is sourced from vineyards from four distinct regions within the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA: the fractured shales of our two Estate Vineyards high upon Skyline Boulevard, coastal Corralitos, the rugged and rocky Los Gatos hills and the Summit Road area, which has the highest elevations in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Each vineyard is vinified to highlight it’s own signature identity; this blend harmonizes and intensifies the regional Santa Cruz Mountain character.
This wine highlights the regional characteristics of Santa Cruz Pinot Noir which are simply marvelous in the 2014 vintage The soaring nose is confirmed by the expressive palate- juicy red fruits, spice and a background of forest-floor. Dark cherry, fruit, earth and spice box flavors are long and the texture of the tannins are evenly balanced. Great with Irish casserole – pork chops, apple and onion!
