2016 Fiddlestix Pinot Noir
Sta. Rita Hills
"...is excellent, wafting from the glass with notes of wood smoke, red and black berry fruit, earthy soil and coniferous forest floor. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and ample, structured around finegrained tannins and succulent balancing acids, finishing with good length and earthy complexity." ~ Wine Advocate
Our single vineyard and small lot releases enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of Pinot Noir by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques. In vintage 2016 we were fortunate to begin a relationship with the renowned Fiddlestix Vineyard in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation.
Originally planted in 1996, this mature vineyard produces Pinot Noir wines of great structure and balance. The Fiddlestix Pinot Noir shows spicy arromatics, vibrant acidity and notes of smoke, black cherry and cola. We hope you enjoy this new addition to our portfolio!
