Product Description

One hesitates to use the “B-Word” (Burgundian) so freely when describing Pinot Noir from California’s Central Coast. But Whitcraft’s limited production “Pence Ranch-Clone 115” captures a Burgundian ethos in combining complex vectors of cherry/black cherry fruit in conjunction with a chorus of such underpinnings as sous-bois, forest truffles and exotic spice. Upon tasting this at a recent wholesale event, we were knocked out! The wine’s fruit purity and richness speaks of the Golden State’s sunshine while the nuance and complexity brought to bear is reminiscent of a well-done production from Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune. Volnay, perhaps, comes to mind! Winemaker Drake Whitcraft is doing a lot of things right at this small production, artisanal estate! Staff fave and highly recommended!
