2018 Recherché Reserve Pinot Noir - Lester Family Vineyard
Santa Cruz Mountains
The Lester Family Vineyard at Deer Park Ranch has been the rising star within our portfolio of Pinot Noirs for years. In 2014 we decided to elevate this magnificent site to our Recherché Reserve status. The best sites for Pinot Noir tend to be the coolest locations where the grapes are on the fringe of achieving ripeness every year. The sunny but cool temperatures at Deer Park Ranch allow all of the flavors possible, in a unique blend of complementary clones.
As we learn more about this incredible vineyard the wines continue to shock and delight us. The 2016 vintage is incredible. The complexity of flavors and textures in this wine is nothing short of intriguing. The natural crisp acidity electrifies the flavors and sets the stage for decades of further development. This is a wine you don't want to miss.
