100% Pinot Noir. Pelio is located in a wind-beaten, high-elevation series of hills 8 miles from the coast of the Pacific Ocean. The extra sunshine hours from sitting on the east-facing slopes are essential in ripening Pinot Noir in this marginal site. This is a taught Pinot Noir.
"Pale ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Pelio East Ridge gives up dust, smoked cranberries, underbrush, fragrant earth and orange peel aromas with notions of potpourri and wild blackberries. Light to medium-bodied, it's intensely flavored but delicately styled with silky, earth-laced fruits and juicy freshness, finishing long and layered. Lovely! " - Erin Brooks, The Wine Advocate
