Thomas Fogarty 2013 La Vida Bella Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Cellar Selection

From a vineyard located close to the coast of Aptos, this bottling shows dewy chaparral aromas on the nose, as well as light cinnamon, nutmeg and smashed graphite, with a dense pomegranate-hibiscus core. It is tightly wound on the sip, with cranberry, raspberry, rose petal and rose-hip flavors. The texture and tension are impressive, and will unleash continued intrigue from 2018 to 2033.
