• Harrington 2018 Central Coast Pinot Noir

Brian did it again, sad that there are only 120 cases left! This comes mostly from the Siletto Vineyard in San Benito county with a little Santa Cruz Mountains fruit thrown in. Mad with minimal sulfites, this is a darker and more brooding compatriot to the previous Chock Rock Vineyard. This improved with some air and shows deep cherry, boysenberry, baking spice and a loamy earth note in the nose. The palate remains on the lighter side with good acid and a hit of sweet black cherry before a little spice and a touch of raspberry bramble comes through to finish. D&M Tasting Notes

Bryan Harrington is one of San Francisco’s most exciting urban natural winemakers. When he started in 2002, the focus was on Pinot Noir, sourcing sustainable old-vine fruit from some of California’s most prestigious sites. But since then the concept has steadily broadened to encompass other varietals, many obscure and unusual, along with some creative blends. He seeks out and sources from heritage vineyards around the state, some well known and some forgotten. From an industrial facility in Bayview, San Francisco, where Bryan collaborates each year with friends and wine enthusiasts, now flow arcane gems like Trousseau, Mission, and Corvina. All Harrington Wines are made with little or no SO2 and some of the sources are remarkable, including a 125 year old vineyard planted mainly to Zinfandel but is a true mixed field blend with old vine Grenache, Mourvèdre, Alicante Bouschet, Mission, Palomino and even Chasselas.
