- Fossil Point Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2015 Product #31728 (In Stock)
Fossil Point is named for the rugged headland in San Luis Obispo County which features sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Central Coast. These cool coastal vineyards are perfect for Pinot Noir, allowing plenty of ripeness while retaining freshness and fine acidity.
The 2015 edition is simply superb, about as fine a California Pinot Noir value as we've seen in years. Loads of sweet, ripe, red and black fruit on the nose and palate with a kick of smoke and sweet spice from 14 months in French oak. A blood orange note comes out with air, lending freshness to match the classic California richness before the sweet spice and dark fruit come up on the long, pure, finish. Really, really, good stuff.
