About This Wine:
Those are the hallmarks of wines crafted at Sinor-LaVellee in the Central Coast region of California. And when it comes to Sinor-LaVellee, the emphasis definitely is on the coast, as the estate Bassi Vineyard is situated just 1.2 miles from the Pacific Ocean.
As a result, the wines naturally reflect their pronounced coastal terroir, as well as the impassioned viticultural handiwork that the Sinor-LaVallee team brings to its vines and soils. Mike Sinor married Cheri LaVallee in 1996 in Burgundy, and soon after they started their own label. In 2013, Mike and Cheri put everything on the line to acquire the ocean-view Bassi Vineyard near Avila Beach.
It was the destination they’d always been seeking—a singular vineyard that they could steward with holistic and meticulous viticulture. Their 2015 “Estate” Pinot Noir is a delicious expression of a noble variety grown and nurtured in a truly special place.
