Tolosa Winery Estate Pinot Noir 2017
Edna Valley is located among the northwest-southeast running volcanic hills of San Luis Obispo County and is the border of the most complex cool climate varieties in California, most notably Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The transverse valley is an extension of the ocean, with a funnel leading past Morro Bay, 3,600 feet below the Pacific Ocean. The cold Pacific breeze sweeps down the coast and into the valley and vineyards, creating a microclimate ideal for ripening delicate Pinot Noir grapes. Fluctuations in hot and cold are further enhanced by the Pismo Venturi effect that clears the evening fog. Edna Valley, the coolest appellation in California, has all the elements for crafting Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines to rival anyone in the world. In Edna Valley, much like the earth and the climate meet, the passion of winemaker Robin Baggett has converged. Dreams of owning a cattle ranch brought him to the area nearly 40 years ago; the revelation of the valley as a remarkable place for Pinot Noir ignited its zeal to build complex, nuanced and balanced wines of excellence. A true supporter of terroir and the deepest hint of place, along with his winemaking team, his mission is to discover the valley's best pockets of land, and through the art of uniting the right places, clones, rootstocks and farming methods, create extraordinary Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays , which are the purest expressions of the Edna Valley.
