Vinography Images: Gibbous Noir

Gibbous Noir
SANTA MARIA, CA: The gibbous moon rises over Pinot Noir vineyards at Bien Nacido near Santa Maria, California. Bien Nacido sits on the end of an east-west transverse mountain range, making it effectively a maritime-influenced desert. The morning fog cover and the cool afternoon breezes from the Pacific Ocean make it an extremely cool site, which offers very long, slow maturation for Pinot Noir and other cool-climate varieties.
