Clos de la Tech is getting ready to release their 2010 Santa Cruz Mountain Estates Pinot Noir. (In previous vintages this was labeled Domaine Lois Louise.) You don’t want to miss this wine.
The 2010 SCME Pinot is a big, relatively dark wine with high-toned, violet-infused aromatics, large flavors and tight acids and tannins. The fruit for this bottling came primarily from the steep, exposed, south-facing hillside at the Domaine Lois Louise vineyard some 10 miles east of the Pacific Ocean. Low yields (less than two tons per acre) and cold, windy weather are the keys to the wine’s incredible depth, structure and power.
