Kali Hart is the most fruit-forward expression in our portfolio. Approachable and bright with a beautiful garnet color in the glass, our 2018 Pinot Noir is ripe and intense. Aromas of Bing cherry, cola, boysenberry and hints of vanilla lift from the glass, and layers of rich blackberries are underscored by soft, silky tannins. A luscious finish follows with accents of minerality, dried herbs and French oak. Kali Hart Pinot Noir is an elegant representation of its cool climate terroir of our estate vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands in California. The 2021 growing season was consistently mild, allowing fruit to ripen gradually on the vine and develop complex flavor. August and September brought moderate weather more in line with previous harvests. October rain quenched the soil without slowing harvest. Wines from 2018 vintage are showing highly detailed flavors, balance and intensity. We sourced fruit from our Sleepy Hollow Vineyard and the Olson Ranch to give this Pinot Noir complexity. Located on a picturesque benchland only 13 miles from Monterey Bay, Sleepy Hollow is one of the first vineyards planted in the Santa Lucia Highlands. With a long, cool growing season, the grapes hang on the vine longer, developing intensity and depth. The Olson Ranch is located at the southern tip of the Santa Lucia Highlands. The rolling hills, limestone-laced soils and afternoon winds yield grapes that accentuate the intensity of Pinot Noir. Grapes from both vineyards create a consistently ripe, highly detailed and delicious Pinot Noir. 9 months in French oak barrels, 15% new Key Coopers: François Frères, Damy, Billon
