Mer Soleil Reserve Pinot Noir 2018
Caymus winemaker Chuck Wagner believes that the 'magic' of Mer Soleil lies in the combination of cooler weather and lots of sunlight. He and his son Charlie own Mer Soleil Vineyard which is located in the Santa Lucia Highlands. The winery is named after the sea (Mer), due to its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, and the sun (Soleil), due to the abundant California sunshine. Charlie Wagner is the winemaker. After great success with Chardonnay, it was only natural that Charlie would make a Pinot Noir in addition to the Chardonnay. The Santa Lucia Highlands is well-known as the perfect home for both these varietals. Grapes ripen slowly, enabling them to make wine of heightened complexity, with layers of aromas and flavors.
