2013 Keller Estate Precioso Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast California
Although all of the wines we craft are of exceptional quality, every vintage we find a few spectacular gems amongst our barrels, which are worthy of our Precioso designation. Precioso is more than just a wine – it is a testament to the Keller family’s dedication for creating elegant and sophisticated works of art.
2013 was a wonderful growing season here in the Petaluma Gap. Uniquely mild temperatures throughout the season (average temperatures ranged between 70o to 75o, which was 4-5o below the average temperature here in the Petaluma Gap and almost 10o lower than other parts of Sonoma County) allowed us time to pick the fruit at optimum maturity.
Red cherry, raspberry, orange peel, white pepper and baking spice aromas and flavors play well together from the first sniff, through the seductively silky, juicy mouthfeel and linger on through the long, luscious finish.
