Grapes for Sostener Pinot are sourced from master grower Steve McIntyre’s vineyard and are own-rooted, 42 year old pinot vines… the oldest in the Santa Lucia Highlands. With their advanced age, they produce rich fruit that has a deeper color component. The rich and dense 2013 Sostener Pinot offers aromas of cherry cola, blackberry compote, vanilla, and spice. The palate is both expansive and energetic, full of dark fruit, soy, and underbrush. A pleasing acidity accentuates the long bright finish.
