Winemaker Notes
If you have enjoyed our Marine Layer Pinot Noir, think of El Pino as its wilder, darker sidekick. We love working on these blends side by side., selecting the more delicate tending barrels for Marine Layer and the more robust for El Pino. What is really interesting is that some of the selections hail from the same vineyard plots, so this is a true barrel by barrel selection, not necessarily vinyeard based. We encourage you to try these side by side. We made only 6 barrels of this special wine, only available to our wine club members and for a limited time in the tasting room.
