Lafond Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2015
2015 was an extremely small crop and gives us a dense expression of Pinot Noir. 7 clones in 12 different fermentation lots allow blending layers of complexity and finesse.

Wine EnthusiastEditors’ Choice This is one of the more elegant and satisfyingly dark expressions of Pinot Noir in its price range, starting with aromas of sugarplum, hibiscus, dark berries, crushed slate and moist earth. The palate combines rose petals, baked boysenberry and dark cocoa with a strong streak of earthy minerality, all upheld by chalky tannins.
Wine SpectatorExotic and enticing, with notes of cola and orange pekoe tea accenting the fruitcake and dried berry flavors. The spicy finish lingers, offering hints of chocolate and coffee. Drink now through 2022. 3,700 cases made.
