Edna Valley is California’s coolest appellation, making it a natural home for sensitive Pinot Noir grapes, and Tolosa’s been giving them the love they need for 40 years! From a vineyard whose terroir is comprised of ancient seashells, volcanic flows, and degraded granite the 2014 Estate Pinot Noir is nimble and fresh with crazy diversity of flavor including cherry, quince, dried strawberry, fresh raspberry, and cocoa. Artfully blended from five clones of Pinot Noir for the best balance, Tolosa delivers a Pinot Noir that’s simultaneously sophisticated and chuggable.

About the wine

Situated on anicent soils perfect in the hills of San Luis Obsipo, Tolosa’s Estate Pinot Noir is bright and refreshing. The hot 2014 vintage is packed with fresh red fruit flavors like cherry, quince, plum, and strawberry, that’s still deft and light thanks to the cooling winds funneled into the hillside vineyards Tolosa has managed for decades.  Aged primarily in used French Oak barrels, this wine isn’t hiding behind oak, but instead flaunting its unique terroir and incredible complexity in the form of smooth tannins and a finish tinged with cedar and allspice. Swiss-born Winemaker Jean Hoeflinger cut his teeth in Bordeaux, South Africa, and at Napa’s Alpha Omega and Newton before heading to the Central Coast. Here, his wines express the delicacy of Pinot Noir with a hint of Napa Valley styling that makes the Tolosa wines hard to put down.

Reviews

95 pts - Alex Casella, WSET Advanced  

"Ruby Rose Color with a densely packed nose and a palate filled with ripe black cherry, macerated red plum, citrus rind,  black pepper, salinity, fragrant herbs, vanilla bean, and fine grain toasted oak. This is in a superb place now and softened up for your near-term enjoyment. Moderate tannins, fleshy mouthfeel, and vibrant red fruit finish. Pair with filet Mignon with Pink Peppercorn Sauce."

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
