Photos taken during an extremely cold summer in the Santa Cruz Mountains during a visit with the VLM who has been a fan for quite some time. First time i tried these wines, and i was blown away. Low alcohol pinot noir from California (one clocked in at 12.2% and had expansiveness and depth, so please stop telling me it can’t be done folks). Raised on indigenous yeasts, obsessively farmed, blahblahblah all the right stuff going on. Hard to come by, but if you ever get the chance, do yourself a favor and take a minute to rediscover what California wines can be, and what a handful of producers are doing.
