Winemaker David Fleming Notes
The 2007 West Terrace Pinot Noir was made from Dijon 667 and 777 clones from our home estate vineyard. By combining these two clones, a wine of delicacy and structure was achieved. A complex but balanced wine, it truly expresses Pinot Noir varietal character from the Santa Lucia Highlands. 

The fruit was cold soaked for 72 hours before inoculation, in small five-ton open top fermenters. The must was punched down twice daily prior to pressing. After fermentation, the wine was aged for just less than a year in almost 50% new French oak barrels. We then allowed it to rest in the bottle for a full year before release.

Enjoy with what you would traditionally eat with red wine, but feel free to venture into new culinary t ...more... erritory - this is an extremely food-friendly wine.
