Oceano Pinot Noir 2019, Spanish Springs Vineyard, San Luis Obispo, California

Oceano Wines is a joint venture between Rachel Martin and Kurt Deutsch. Together they decided to make wine from a very specific place, Spanish Springs Vineyard, on the coast of San Luis Obispo, California. As the western-most vineyard site in California, Spanish Springs provided the cool climate they sought for the two varieties they wanted to bottle, chardonnay and pinot noir. 2019 vintage – 100% Pinot Noir. A perfumed nose of fresh strawberry, raspberry, cranberry, red currant, violets, vanilla, and sweet tobacco. A raspberry attack leads to a layered mouth of pomegranate, red currant, blueberry, plum, anise and hints of cocoa. Firm but elegant tannins give way to a long bing cherry finish.
