2013 Destination West Pinot Noir Central Coast
Destination West is the second label" of Jack Creek Cellars, owned by Doug and Sabrina Kruse.
Located about 7 miles from the coast and on the southern end of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, Kruse Estate Vineyards is in a unique position with a cool micro-climate.Here the fruit is exposed to brisk foggy mornings brought in by the marine influence, which burns off to early afternoon sun warming and ripening the fruit. Following, invigorating breezes blow through "the Templeton Gap," as the locals call it, which cools the fruit down and maintains the integrity of the varietals they have planted. Their estate vineyard consists of 40 acres, of which 24 acres are Pinot Noir, assembled from a diverse palette of clones. "
