Pali, 2017 Pinot Noir 'Radian Vineyard'

About The Wine

Our single-vineyard Pinot Noirs feature a highly selective and worthy collection of vineyard-designated wines, bottled individually to showcase the nuanced characteristics of Pinot Noir. Pali's 'Radian Vineyard' Pinot Noir is complex, elegant, and age-worthy This vineyard is the western most vine-yard along Santa Rosa Road in Sta Rita Hills. The vineyard’s distinctive topography consists of dramatic changes in altitude and soils laden with gravel, diatomaceous earth and fossils of ancient sea creatures. All grapes are hand harvested and hand sorted before fermented in small lots and aged in 50% new French oak barrels and 50% neutral French oak barrels for 540 days before bottled.

The AVA

With a total area of 30,720 acres, the Sta. Rita Hills AVA is home to over 59 vineyards, totaling 2,700 hundred acres planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and 18 other cool climate wine grape varieties. The combination of a purely East/West maritime throat, poor marine-based soils, elevated calcium in the soil and the Pacific’s cooling influence through fog, wind and moderating summer heat combine to form one of the world’s best cool-climate viticulture areas for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Winemaker Notes

Roasted cherry and boysenberry aromas meet with an earthy iodine and rust touch on the nose. The palate combines dried thyme and oregano against grilled black-plum flavors, and there's a lingering hint of tobacco toward the finish.
