Grape(s): Pinot Noir
Localization: San Luis Obispo County, California, USA
Tasting Notes: A complex and delicious stunner, beginning with opulent aromas of black cherry, wet loam and light mint on the nose. There's a tight line of stony, loamy minerality on the palate, balancing the wild raspberry, mulberry and black-pepper spice flavors.
The Domain: Doug Margerum introduced Valle de Inez, which translates as Santa Ynez Valley, in 2016 to explore the blending potential across California’s many unique appellations. Valle de Inez embraces the spirit of collaboration and allows Doug to foster relationships with like-minded producers and make wines from the cold coastal regions of California with an emphasis on wines that are food-friendly and over-deliver for their price.
