2020 Price Family Estates Pinot Noir

2020 Price Family Estates Pinot Noir

This vintage exudes all of the qualities we love most about the range of pinot noir from this region – from the terroir of the inland hillsides to the more extreme coastal sites. On the nose you’ll find blueberry, violet, and black tea. Notes of grilled meat, violet, and cardamom provide depth and texture on the palate, while a touch of sweet cocoa powder further complements this pretty wine.

More Information
The 2020 vintage started with a mild winter and lighter than normal rainfall. During flowering, we saw some of that rain, resulting in a poorer “set” of berries. Lower yields concentrate flavors into fewer clusters and fewer berries, so what we lost in yield, we gained in quality. The year took a unique turn when our hospitality team was deployed to the vineyard, helping with shoot thinning and suckering in Springtime due to the pandemic-related Adobe closure. We were also able to make on-the-spot decisions regarding heat spikes later in the year; an absolute advantage of farming our own lands, we were able to take immediate, decisive actions with our vineyard team. With our constant collaboration between winemaking and farming teams, the resulting wines shine, exhibiting incredible concentration and complexity: a bright spot from an otherwise challenging year.
