A beautiful vintage marked the third vintage of Slander. Similar to previous vintages, this blend is primarily a mélange of hillside Santa Rita Hills fruit. This year also included a new source of Pinot Noir - the first foray to the William Wesley vineyard in Annapolis on the Sonoma Coast. This turned out to be one of the best harvest of Pinot Noir of the vintage.





Bright ruby in the glass, the aromatics concentrate - cherries, raspberries, dried rose petals, a touch of sweet oak and a hint of forest floor. The entry is silky with a classic Pinot Noir palate: loads of ripe red fruit, savory under tones and a principled backbone of acidity. Balanced, lean and complex, the wine finishes softly at length.
