HIGHFLYER 2009 PINOT NOIR "DOCTOR'S VINEYARD" SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 750mL

This vineyard is located in the south eastern part of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. The property is 243 acres of which 193 are planted to Pinot Noir. The vineyard is planted on steep hillsides on the western ridge just above the Salinas River Valley at 400 to 1200 feet above sea level. The marine influence from the Pacific Ocean produces a north wind and a fog layer that allows fruit to ripen in the day yet cools off at night for nice acid balance, bright rich fruit, and lower alcohols.

In 2009 only 36 barrels were produced. Aged for 12 months in 100% French oak, 20% of which were new barrels. This vintage shows bright fruit focused flavors and the purity of cool climate Pinot Noir aromatics, with tiers of concentrated young cherry, cola, raspberry jam and red plum. Fleshy and full-bodied, finishing with light tannins and a lingering finish
