El Rey Wine’s 2013 Wine Notes

El Rey Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2013 – A Noble Wine

El Rey Wine is a beautiful interpretation of a Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. This year’s wine is a delicate blend of grapes from Pinot Noir clones 115 and 828. Characteristics of the 115 clone are grapes with a deep ruby hue and an earthy aroma of raspberry, strawberry and dark cherry notes. The 828 clone of the vineyard is known for the cinnamon, nutmeg and herb notes leading to a long and lingering finish. The fruit is treated with long, cool whole cluster fermentation and neutral French oak aging.
