Ripe Black Cherry, Lilac and Moroccan Spices proceed explosive flavors of Ripe Plum, Cherries and cocoa dust. A complex texture and mouthfeel is shaved by Light acids and sprinkled tannins which help to balance now but gain in complexity and richness over the next 7 years.
The Edna Valley AVA is located in San Luis Obispo County and is part of the larger Central Coast AVA. It benefits from sea air coming in from Morro Bay making it one of California’s coolest regions and hence great for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Indigené Cellars Pinot Noir 2010 is quite developed with a brick, ruby colour and earthy fruit aromas. On the palate it has berry fruits, raisins and vanillwith a long finish. Two Pinot Noir clones were cultivated; the renowned Dijon 115 and Mariafeld 23. The grapes were picked on September 15th and left to cold soak for 48 hours. Fermentation followed using natural wild yeast.
The wine was aged for 19 months in Nevers and Leroi oak barrels with 40% new.
