AIENA 08 PN MONTEREY

Aiena Wines, formerly known as Foghorn Winery, produces high quality Burgundy Varietal wines from one of the outstanding microclimates in Monterey County.
Two vineyards provide the grapes that make up this wine: Mission Ranch, southwest of the town of Soledad and at the junction of the Arroyo Seco and Santa Lucia Highlands appellations, and Silacci, which is just outside the northern end of the Santa Lucia Highlands and is one of the coolest sites in the county where Pinot Noir is planted. Both are on silty, decomposed granite-based soils. Mission is a bit better drained and less fertile than Silacci and both naturally bear small crops.Because Mission is about 18 miles south of Silacci, and further from Monterey Bay, the climate there is warmer and grapes ripen around the middle of September. At Silacci the grapes are still on the vine until around the end of the month. The sites have different characteristics. Mission gives dark, fairly ripe and plush wine while Silacci is a bit tighter, higher in acid and more perfumed. They fit together quite nicely.
