Flavors of plums, raspberries and vanilla
Diamond Collection wines are classic California expressions that offer fruit-forward, multi-dimensional flavor and immediate drinkability. Pinot Grigio is a delicate varietal that can’t withstand too much sun and needs to be picked at precisely the right moment. When it’s just right, it bestows citrus notes, tropical fruit flavors, and pretty floral nuances you don’t find in other white varietals. To capture its personality without altering it with oak, we ferment and finish our Pinot Grigio entirely in stainless steel.
2012 was an excellent vintage across California due to the steady, mild temperatures during the summer months. This consistency helped the grapes mature gradually and develop deeply concentrated fruit with complex aromatics, excellent body, and supple tannins.
