2013 Dylan David Pinot Noir Custom Blend, 750ML
Reserve Custom Blend 750ML
This wine is handcrafted from nurtured vines of seven French clones. The appellation's coastal influence of warm days and cool nights provides the vines the ability to develop varietal fruit with rich concentrated flavors. This wine was aged exclusively in new French oak, unfiltered and unfined.
The Lester Family Ranch contains three hundred fifty acres on the eastern ridge of Pleasant Valley. Its vineyards consist of seventenn acres of individual blocks of French Dijon Pinot Noir clones. It is situated one mile from our winery and is a shot distance from the Monterey Bay. The vineyards are south facing and possess their own unique micro-climates with warm days and tempered nights allowing the vines to gradually produce and mature fruit with intense varietal characteristics and complexity. The vines and the grapes clusters they produce are selectively nurtured, gently hand pruned, hedged, de-leafed and harvested. This wine was aged exclusively in small French oak barrels of medium toast that were held in environmentally controlled chambers.
