After tasting Saxon Brown's Parmelee Hill Vineyard Pinot, it made me want to try a lot more wines from this special parcel of land. As winemaker Jeff Gaffner described it to me, the afternoon winds roll in like clockwork here, helping to provide that perfect "cool" environment in which Pinot thrives not just in the mornings but the afternoons.These unique climactic conditions combined with delicate handling of the grapes made for smooth, elegant Pinot, with some classic California black cherry notes, underscored by a hint of Burgundian leanness and minerality. These tasty Pinots stood out to me in the sea of wine at Family Winemakers in San Francisco this month.
