Arcadian Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow Vineyard 2007

As a winegrower I am interested primarily in growing the best possible fruit we can to achieve world-class wines. To that end we are highly selective in the barrels that make the final cut for the vineyard-designated wines. We are also concerned that the high cost of farming to these small yields is matched by the high quality of the wines we release. This way of thinking has provided us with an opportunity to create a village wine that is offered at a price that will appeal to many. This inaugural release of the Santa Lucia Highlands, selected from two of our premier cru vineyards, is the result of this strict approval of barrels into the vineyard-designated program. The cuvee is comprised of 10 barrels from Garysí Vineyard and 24 barrels of Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Pinot Noir.

An elegant and perfumed Pinot Noir thatís still youthful and lively, the 2007 Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow Vineyard, which spent 27 months in French oak, delivers classic forest floor, saddle leather and underbrush to go with a vibrant core of sweet Pinot Noir fruit. Medium-bodied, balanced and lightly textured, itís a graceful, classy effort that should hit full maturity in another 3-4 years and have a lengthy drink window. Drink 2015-2022.
The 2007 Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow wafts from the glass with sweet red cherries, crushed flowers, tobacco, mint, licorice and spices. This feminine, gracious Pinot is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the fruit retains its juiciness. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. ”
