stands for Palisades and
is owned by a group of 21 friends and co-workers who
live or work - some both - in Pacific Palisades,
CA and thought it would be cool to own a winery together.
Pali loves Pinot, plain and simple. They strive
to produce Pinots that accentuate the flavors imparted
by the individual vineyards from where the grapes are
sourced, and accordingly, they produce only single-vineyard
designated wines to highlight the individual flavors
of the vineyards.
Focusing on Pinot Noirs of the Willamette Valley,
Sonoma County, and the Santa Rita Hills, Pali has
modeled itself after its well-known next-door neighbor
in Lompoc, CA, Loring Wine Company, founded in the
of single-vineyard Pinots.
100 percent French oak for 10 months, this smooth
and elegant Pinot shows ripe, concentrated
black fruits and raspberries with hints
of spice and a soft touch of minerality. It is rich
and delicate with moderate tannins and a soft finish.
