Superstar winemaker Ed Kurtzman and proprietor Gary Franscioni (ROAR) explore two appellations and three varietals to produce stunning wines from August West. The 2018 Peterson Vineyard Pinot from the Santa Lucia Highlands is one of their best!

94 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Brilliant scarlet. A highly complex bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits, exotic spices and sandalwood, and a hint of smokiness builds in the glass. Densely packed yet lively in the mouth, offering intense black raspberry, boysenberry, candied rose and spicecake flavors that turn sweeter through the midpalate. Finishes very long and smooth, with harmonious tannins framing lingering red berry preserve and floral pastille notes."

Ed Kurtzman has been making wine since 1994 where he got his start in the cellar at Bernardus in Carmel Valley, California under the guidance of Don Blackburn and Kirby Anderson. From 1995 through 1998 Ed moved across Monterey County to Chalone Vineyard where he was enologist and then assistant winemaker under Michael Michaud. Ed had the good fortune of meeting future August West partners Howard Graham and John Peterson while he was winemaker at Testarossa for the vintages 1999-2002.  August West wines are produced in San Francisco.
