Cutruzzola Vineyards "Gloria" Pinot Noir 2018

Coastal San Luis Obispo AVA, CA
93 pts. Vinous:

"Vivid red. Lively red fruit and baking spice qualities on the highly perfumed nose; suggestions of rose and musky rhubarb appear as the wine opens up. Spicy and energetic in style, offering juicy strawberry and spicecake flavors that deepen slowly with aeration. Shows gentle sweetness on a long, spice-tinged finish framed by discreet tannins. 15% whole clusters and 30% new French oak." - Josh Raynolds

It’s so fun when we discover a TRULY BOUTIQUE winery like this, which produces amazing Pinots in small quantities. You definitely won’t find this delicious wine in a store! We just love the nicely blended earthy and red fruit flavors, with wonderful pumpkin pie spices that extend from the start to the finish and beyond! Try it with salmon - oh what a great pairing!

FROM THE WINERY

Our Riven Rock Vineyard is located six miles from the ocean in a coastal valley stretching east from the town of Cambria. The vines are planted on steep, predominately south-facing broken hills. The vineyard consists of five acres of Pinot Noir (clones 5, 667, 828, 115 and 23; planted between 2001 and 2006) and two acres of Riesling (clones 2 and 10; planted in 2006), mostly on lime-bearing soils. The remaining portion of the 47-acre property has been left in its natural state.

After a long, cool growing season, harvest was completed between September 13 - September 20. The grapes were fermented with 15% whole clusters and native-yeast fermentation. The wines were aged in 30% new Tonnellerie Remond barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Clones Pommard 5 & 115 were selected for this bottling.

Our 2018 Pinots were all bottled using M.A. Silva 1 by 1 corks, lessening the risk of cork taint in our wines. These corks are individually tested and guaranteed by M.A. Silva.

Tasting Notes:

A bright nose loaded with red fruit, predominately red cherry. Cedar, spicebox and silky tannins round out the mid-palate and the wine graduates to a gorgeous finish.
