Jackson Estate Outland Ridge Pinot Noir 2015
Wild strawberry jam aromatics with smoky, briary and raspberry flavors, finished with a burst of blueberry. Cultivated on Mendocino County's Anderson Valley’s high eastern ridge, this remote vineyard is full of chunky, broken rock in thin, powdery soil similar to a Goldridge classification. The Outland Ridge Pinot Noir's vines strain to cling to the ridgelines yet produce deep, profoundly complex and age worthy wines.
Elevation: 1,500 - 1,700 feet
Soil: Pale loam soils on top of fractured sandstone over good drainage and low water holding capacity.
Climate: The most northern growing region in California with a heavy marine influence.
