Occidental SWK Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

A charming expression of vibrant, delicate Pinot Noir, with juicy acidity and supple blackberry, plum and wild berry flavors that subtly reverberate. Ends with a long, pure finish. -WS
OCCIDENTAL: A BRIEF HISTORY 1993 I began producing a series of pinot noirs from the Flowers vineyards on Camp Meeting Ridge and the Hirsch Vineyard, both in the Ft. Ross-Seaview area. I was eager to compare these two coastal pinot noirs to those I was making at Kistler Vineyards from some of the best sites in the Russian River Valley. 1995 Together with Warren Dutton, I planted a four-acre pinot vineyard on Taylor Lane directly across the street from the Summa Vineyard. I named it ?ccidental Vineyard??because it overlooked the Pacific and reminded me of my time at Ridge.
