Cortada Alta is the highest elevation vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation.  All 17 blocks at Cortada lie between 1200 and 1700 feet.  August West gets most of its Pinot from the Swiss clone Mariafeld, also known as clone 23, and Dijon clone 667.

The 2022 Cortada Alta is a larger-framed, fully ripe Pinot.  The berry flavors are perfectly-suited for meals you might pair with a Cabernet or a Syrah.  This '22 Cortada will age well into the mid 2030s.
