2018 Beauregard Pinot Noir, Coast Grade Vineyard, Ben Lomond Mountain, Santa Cruz Mountains   

The 2014 Beauregard Coast Grade Pinot Noir has a dark ruby red core moving to light garnet hues on the rim. The nose is well balanced, fruit forward and highly perfumed with the classic coastal California Pinot Noir aromatics we all adore. The nose has aromas of preserved black cherry, ripe strawberry, wet roses, wild herbs, damp forest, sandalwood and various exotic oak spices which will integrate more with bottle age. The palate is nearly full bodied with flavors which mirror the nose with rich fruit flavors of dehydrated strawberry, ripe black cherry, wet leaves, vanilla bean and oak spices. This wine is delicious now and ideal for drinking upon release and over the next 3-5 years.
