2018 Ghostwriter Pinot Noir, Ahglren Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mountains
This is perhaps the most "Burgundian" of the 2018 Pinots. I hate using that word because it is really quite Californian, but the fruit is tart and high toned and the wine has a thinner smooth kind of glide across the palate. This is the first time that we have bottled a 100% Ahlgren Vineyard Pinot Noir and it as well as the new label and words are a tribute to Dexter and Val Ahlgren. 50% whole cluster, neutral French oak. 1 barrel produced. RIP Dexter. 24 cases produced.
