We're delighted with the results from our prior vintage from the acclaimed Santa Rita AVA! This coastal region by Santa Barbara is world-reknowed for the lucsious Pinot Noir growing conditions-cool morning fogs followed by warmer afternoons allow for extended hang time for this delicate varietal. Planted on hillside vieyards a few miles from the Pacific Ocean near Santa Barbara, three rare, highly sought-after premium Pinot Noir clones -115, 667 and 777- have been nurtured and grown to our specifications (Gary makes numerous trips to oversee the vines). The result is a tiny amount of small, intense fruit clusters for this exquisite Pinot Noir! Expressing a deep, rich fruitiness unique to this cool-climate growing region, generous flavors of ripe cherries, sweet yams and vanilla, with bright acidity and supple tannins delight the palate.
Currently in the bottle, this vintage is already tasting wonderfully-even when young! We're so excited imagining how the finished wine will be! Pre-order your future 2016 Pinot Noir to guarantee you will receive this beautiful varietal in your future shipment. 275 cases produced.
Note: There are still a very few 3-Liter, hand etched bottles of our 2015 Pinot Noir available! These make amazing gifts and are the absolutely LAST of this vintage available!
