Wine of the Week - Last Light "Derbyshire Vineyard" Pinot Noir

We chose Last Light's Pinot Noir from their Derbyshire Vineyard in San Luis Obispo to highlight this week. Produced with non-interventionist and traditional techniques, this elegant yet impressive Pinot Noir has redefined what can be produced in even the most extreme coastal climates.      

Last Light’s name is a nod to the coastal vineyard sites from which they source their grapes, both of which see the last light of the sun on the west coast as it sets over the ocean. Currently making Pinot Noir exclusively from the Derbyshire Vineyard in San Simeon and Chardonnay from the Spanish Springs Vineyard in the Edna Valley AVA, these locations represent the ultimate in cool climate viticulture. For founders Jared Lee and David Sartain, this project is truly driven by passion. They don’t make wine with mass market appeal in mind, instead focusing on producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay they want to drink and put their names on. With such unique vineyard sites, they focus solely on making wine that reflects these amazing coastal locations.
