Mission Ines Vineyards
Santa Maria Valley
Pinot Noir 2013
Free Shipping on 4 or more

***57% OFF!***
 
In the cool Pacific breeze of the Santa Maria Valley, Pinot Noir shows it's most Burgundian, and perhaps it's finest in all of the West Coast. A tremendous vintage for Southern California Pinot started this bottling on the right foot, but delicate handling by winemakers at Mission Ines, and the perfect inclusion of French oak, really sets this apart and highlights the impeccable quality potential of the region. This is a five star wine to jump at for the price.
 
92 Points - Jonathan H. Newman!
"It boasts a pleasing nose of black raspberries, dark cherries, and cranberries, with fragranced red flowers. Nicely textured and silky with nice fruit up front including pomegranates, blueberries and raspberries with cola and spice."

This is quite the consumer friendly Pinot Noir from the Santa Maria Valley. While Mission Ines’ other Pinots are quite nice, this is the winery’s flagship wine. It got a dazzling array of fresh, layered fruit that showcases beautiful Pinot from the great 2013 vintage of this fine appellation. It is 100% Pinot Noir and spent 18 months in French oak. Over the last four years, I have gotten to know and respect winemaker Bryan Davison. Bryan has been the winemaker at many top notch wineries including Chateau St. Jean, Martin Ray, and Schlumberger winery. He is passionate about wine and has a wonderful palate. He has done a fine job with this pretty Pinot Noir. It boasts a pleasing nose of black raspberries, dark cherries, and cranberries, with fragranced red flowers. Nicely textured and silky with nice fruit up front including pomegranates, blueberries and raspberries with cola and spice. Perfect as an aperitif or pair with bouillabaisse, sushi grade Ahi tuna with fresh wasabi, King salmon, roast duckling in a bing cherry sauce or roast pork. Only 750 cases were produced.

Vineyard Notes
These grapes are grown in a world class vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley. Vines here are blanketed by fog on a near daily basis, resulting in one of the longest growing seasons in the state. This extended “hang-time” encourages the fullest development of flavor and color in the grape.
 
Vintage Notes
Moderate temperatures with no appreciable rainfall throughout the ripening season allowed the grapes to develop exceptionally concentrated flavors.
 
Fermentation Notes
The grapes were crushed into small fermenters. After cold-soaking for three days to extract rich color, the must fermented for two weeks to fully extract the flavors from the grape skins. The wine was then gently pressed out and barreled down. 
 
Tasting Notes
Color: Deep ruby.
Aromas: Fresh berries, spice and vanilla.
Palate: Rich mouthfeel, long finish of blueberry and raspberry.
