Ballard Lane’s 2011 Pinot Noir is a classic example of a Central Coast Pinot, blended with fruit from various Central Coast vineyards grown and managed by the reputable Miller family. Known for growing some of the most prized fruit on the Central Coast for over 40 years, the Miller family continues to be a leader of the winegrowing region. Ballard Lane’s 2011 Pinot Noir is deep garnet in color with aromas of rose petals, spices, plums, cherries, and just a hint of oak. The soft, round, and rich palate is full-bodied with fresh, vibrant red fruit flavors and subtle hints of French Oak. This Pinot is praised for its complexity and nice balance, and is incredibly food friendly. [+]
