2021 Overlook Pinot Noir
About the Wine
The 2021 Overlook Pinot Noir represents another splendid blend from some of California’s best cool-climate growing regions in Monterey, Santa Barbara, and Sonoma Counties. The 2021 Overlook Pinot Noir has an impeccable pedigree, and each vineyard adds to the charm and complexity of the wine. Such dedication by our grower partners warranted hand-harvesting at night with early-morning deliveries to provide the purest expression of what this somewhat challenging vintage had to offer.
