TASTING NOTES

York Mountain Winery

Stephen's Pinot Noir
Varietal/Style: Pinot Noir
Origin: York Mountain
Vintage: 1996
Winemaker: Steve Goldman
Rating: 12/20
Retail Price: $20.00

Tasting Notes: This soft-spoken Pinot is at peak maturity. With little to no tannin to interfere with the wine's red fruit flavors, it is one of the easiest-drinking reds we've recently sampled. Forget storing it, buy and savor it now. (Date tasted: 6/10/00)

Profile: Purchasing York Mountain Winery in 1970 from its founders, Max Goldman and his son Steve have earned a place among the most important vintners in the Paso Robles area. As members of such organizations as the Central Coast Wine Grape Growers Association, the Wine Institute's board and Paso Robles Vintners and Growers Association, the family has been instrumental in promoting the quality and image of Central Coast wines.

York Mountain Winery was sold in August 2001 to David and Mary Weyrich, who also own Martin & Weyrich Winery in Paso Robles. The Weyrichs intend to restore York Mountainís tasting room, create a Central Coast winemaking museum, turn the two-story farmhouse into a bed-and-breakfast inn and plant up to 40 acres of Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.
