'Coastal' Pinot Noir Panel

Stephen Dooley

Stephen Ross Dooley had the pleasure of joining a team of 6 local winemakers at the Point San Luis Lighthouse for a Pinot Noir Panel.

In this focus tasting, we explored the pronounced marine influence exhibited by Pinot Noirs grown within five miles of the Pacific Ocean in San Luis Obispo (SLO) Wine Country. We discovered not only the diversity of flavors and vineyards within this narrow swath of coastline, but also the shared regional qualities that bind our local Pinot Noirs together.
