Comprised of an intelligent collection of different clones including Martini, Dijon and Pommard, this beautifully showcases this winery off Highway 101 in San Luis Obispo County. Originally known for their sparkling wines, Laetitia is also quite adept at still wines. Earthy and savory, this reserve opens up with lithe notes of black cherry, plum, pomegranate, Bing cherry and back notes of mushroom, cedar, tea leaf and plantain. This offers enough acidity to keep it fresh and a deft balance between fruit and oak, resulting in a lengthy finish and a wine that cries out for the companionship of food. Aged 11 months in 40% new French oak this charming pinot noir announces that the humble Arroyo Grande Valley can stand shoulder to shoulder with other better-known pinot noir growing regions.
