Mission Codename Sandy loam
We’ve been featuring Lost Canyon Winery since 2008. As long as they continue to impress and delight me, I’ll keep bringing you their wonderful wines.
This wine is a complex, fruity, elegant and delicious Pinot that scored a 90 point score from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Our Agent Red would give the wine a solid 93-94 points. The wine is that good.
About the vineyard
Established in 1995 and planted to Pinot Noir clones 115, 113 and Beringer in sandy loam soil, the Morelli Lane Vineyard finds its home at a 1000’ elevation and only six short miles from the rugged and cool Sonoma Coast. Due to its location, Morelli Lane is influenced by cool mornings and warm daytime temperatures, allowing for maximum color development and unique flavors that lend themselves to crafting in a more classic Burgundian style.
Enjoy throughout the summer, but you might want to keep some on hand for your autumn entertaining…
