Red berries, cherry and herbs shine on the nose while the palate highlights tight, focused fruit with bright acidity.
KW Ranch Pinot Noir 2014 comes from the lower slopes along the eastern edge of the appellation. Red berries and cherry join undertones of menthol and wild herbs on an expressive nose. The palate highlights tight and focused fruit, with bright acidity and mineral, that merge into a long, structured finish. Although delicious now, this wine will peak after 2018.
KW Ranch is located in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands, southeast of McIntyre Vineyard and just northwest of Gary’s Vineyard. Planted to both Pinot Noir and Syrah in 2000 by Kirk Williams, the site features a well-exposed, gently-rolling hillside with gravely loam soils. Wines from KW Ranch tend to be intense and highly aromatic.
