Walt Clos Pepe Pinor Noir 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
Deep garnet in color, the 2018 Clos Pepe Pinot Noir features intense fruit aromas of black cherry and ripe pomegranate are infused with toasty oak. The palate opens to a beautifully rich and lush texture laced with hints of salinity - a distinguishing characteristic of the site. The minerality and warm, spicy character of the vineyard is brought forward by fermentation in concrete tank and whole cluster fermentation.
There's rich loaminess to the raspberry and dark cherry flavors in this red, flanked by forest floor notes. Ends with slate and cooking spices on the structured finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,845 cases made.
