J. Lohr Pinot Noir Vineyard Series Fog's Reach

2011 was an exceptional vintage for Pinot Noir wine quality in the Arroyo Seco appellation. Although similar to 2010 in terms of total growing degree days that fuel overall grape maturation, the 2011 vintage had just 15 days over 90°F for the season, with none occurring during the critical period of maturation. Pinot Noir starts forming the red pigments seen in a wine glass in early August, during this period known as veraison. The greatest wine color occurs when the fruit temperature is just below 80°F during veraison, which is exactly what happened in the 2011 season. This exceptional weather coupled with a low 1.7 ton per acre yield in the vineyard resulted in a notable vintage for wine quality.

Our Pinot Noir vineyard resides in the cool and windy enclave of the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County. Comprised of multiple Dijon selections of Pinot Noir clones (115, 667, 777), as well as Pommard 4, the vines are grown on extremely well-drained, loamy sand and gravelly loam soils intermixed and underlain by large potato-sized cobblestones. The unique combination of soil, climate and viticulture produces deeply-colored Pinot Noir with elegantly refined structure and flavor.

Further to my previous comment where I said "not as smooth as I expected."
I take it back. It is excellent. ONLY, let it breath before drinking for at least 1/2 hour.
Not as smooth as I expected.
