2008 Folk Machine Pinot Noir, Central Coast
The 2008 Central Coast Pinot Noir is our fourth bottling of this wine. The 08 is 95% a blend of 3 Monterey County vineyards and 5% fruit from the Vecino Vineyard in Potter Valley. The wine was aged in primarily neutral oak to leave the fruit and freshness of the wine intact. Overall, like many of our wines, this Pinot Noir is intented to be balanced and drinkable. It is not heavily extracted, largely structured, big oaked, alcoholic, or sweet.

Tasting Note: We have always intended that this wine be a casual Pinot, something that can be paired with food and enjoyed easily - not a show-stopper. The 08 is a return to the leaner, lower alcohol, more earth influenced style that we achieved in 05 and 06. Consistent with this wine is a pronounced spiciness and light strawberry flavor and color. Enjoy it till it's gone - don't wait! - KL
