A new wine in the Ceritas range, the 2016 Pinot Noir Occidental Vineyard captures the essence of this coastal site. Blood orange, mint and white pepper add lift to a core of bright, red-toned fruit. Lifted, precise and absolutely impeccable in its balance, the 2016 simply has it all. The whole clusters are beautifully woven into the wine’s overall fabric. Even today, in the early going, the 2016 is positively stellar.
