Ask a question about this product

1997 Soleil & Terroir Pinot Noir, Edna Ranch Vineyard, is deep ruby red. It is full body and complex. Also, it has intense fruit layered with flavors of cherry, plum, berry, cedar, toast, smoke, spices, leather, caramel and vanilla. It finishes with a spicy earthy quality, while the tannins fold in, to give it a nice Burgundian earthy aftertaste.

Fermentation
It is produced in a unique style, 1/3 whole cluster berry fermented in small open top fermenters to facilitate maximum flavor and color extraction. The cap is punched down several times a day over a period of 7 to 10 days.

Barrel Age
The Pinot Noir is aged in 100% French Oak from the Allier, Never and Troncais Forest for twelve (12) months. The wine is further aged for an additional 12 months in the bottle. Aging in the bottle allows the wine to rest and round out its natural fruit flavor and aromatic attribute.

Soleil & Terroir Label TM
Soleil & Terroir label was established in 1997 to produce limited production, ultra premium wines aged in both French and American oak. The winery produces Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and is located in the Central Coast?s Edna Valley of California.

Central Coast Wine Region; Edna Valley Appellation
Between San Luis Obispo and Oceana, California lies the Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande Valley Appellations. Both valleys are wide open to the cool Pacific winds and fog. This cool climate is ideal for great Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Likewise, this climate, and an unusual combination of soils, make it potentially the equal of any winemaking region in the world.
