2016 BirchBark Pinot Noir Magnum
The BirchBark Pinot is our first foray into Santa Lucia Highlands. In 2016 we took full advantage of the ripe conditions to create a juicy, full bodied Pinot from Tondre Vineyard. This wine has a rich under underbelly of ripe strawberry and rhubarb. We paired the body of the 667 clone Pinot with tight grained French oak, 15% of which was new.
What better way to help out the animals of Santa Cruz and Monterey as 10% per bottle is donated to the BirchBark Foundation. This volunteer veterinary group helps save the pets of owners that have fallen on hard times. Get this wine while it lasts!
