Tasting 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 simultaneously, selecting the more delicate 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 vineyard based. We encourage you to try these side by side.
Vineyard Notes
The 2018 El Pino is sourced from 4 vineyards: 20% from Durell Vineyard, 20% from Thorn Ridge Vineyard and 30% from Barlow Vineyard all in Sonoma Coast with the balance of 30% Sullivan Vineyard from Sonoma Mountain.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were completely destemmed and spent about 18-22 days in small open top fermenters following a cold soak. The fermentations occured naturally with only ambient yeast. It was aged for 10 months in French oak, 35% of which was new, in Cavin, Francois Freres and Rousseau barrels.
