From J. Lohr's Single Vineyard Collection, this wine is named for the rolling fog that reaches into the vineyards of the Arroyo Seco and cools the sun-drenched grapes. Their Pinot Noir vineyard resides in the cool and windy enclave of the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County. Comprised of multiple Dijon selections of Pinot Noir clones (115, 667, 777), as well as Pommard 4, the vines are grown on extremely well-drained, loamy sand and gravelly loam soils intermixed and underlain by large potato-sized cobblestones. The unique combination of soil, climate and viticulture produces deeply-colored Pinot Noir with elegantly refined structure and flavor.
Aged 8 months in French oak barrels; 50% new, Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 93 points saying "This savory Pinot Noir features aromas of blistered tomatoes, Italian herbs, Dr. Pepper and strawberries stewed with anise. Oregano and rosemary give herbal backbone to the pomegranate fruit flavors, all culminating in a very sanguine finish."
