2020 Wrath Pinot Noir, San Saba Vineyard
Deep and full-flavored, the 2020 San Saba Pinot Noir has aromas of spice box, apple peel and minerals that join flavors of cooking spices, blackberry fruit and cherry cola along with a pleasing earthiness and acidity that knits everything together in a wonderful glass of wine.
Though our estate vineyard shares the same soil as the SLH AVA- Arroyo Gravelly Loam and Hanford Gravelly Sandy Loam- its slightly lower altitude gives it a unique microclimate with cooler nights and warmer days. This helps our grapes develop a spicy character along with its dark fruit. The cooler nights allow the grapes to retain their acidity which keeps flavors beautifully balanced.
