| 2007 Storrs Winery Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains|
Color: Garnet with a purple edge
Earthy with vibrant aromas of raspberry, strawberry and cherry.
Cherries, mint, and strawberry define the palate followed by soft notes of vanilla. A velvety softness underpins the mouthfeel and offers a wine that is exquisitely approachable, yet able to age gracefully for several years. From the Winemaker

A small winery dedicated to the excellence that can be grown in the Santa Cruz Mountains and created from this special appellation’s fruit.
"At Storrs, with each new day, we strive to make the best, ever better. This thinking extends not only to each and every barrel, but to those choices along life's path that move us daily from the expected to the exceptional. We believe the Santa Cruz Mountains offers such diversity that you can find a near perfect site for most any varietal.
Some, however, seem especially well suited – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and beyond that only time will tell. We feel that no other region outside of Burgundy and Chablis consistently produces Chardonnays of such complexity, depth and elegance. And cool climate Zins – ooh la la!
Winemaking wise – our philosophy is basically to step back and let nature take its course, for the most part. Our job, outside of totally hands-on vineyard work, comes when its time to select the barrels for the final wine that you will enjoy. This is the artistry of winemaking and no two domains would do it quite the same. Thus we can have many Echezeaux, but only one Domaine Romanée-Conti.
And so it is with Storrs…
