Description

"The rocky minerality aspect takes center stage in this appellation blend, beginning with wet soil and gravel aromas as well as light cherry and strawberry on the nose. That leads to a tightly woven palate, where the earthy aspects open slowly to reveal pomegranate and oregano flavors." ~ Wine Enthusiast

"...outstanding, offering lots of spiced red fruits, underbrush, and peppery stem notes in a medium-bodied, clean, classy, balanced style. Drink it over the coming 4-6 years or so." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

Since 1989 our family owned and operated winery has produced wines of superior quality and value. This hand crafted wine represents the best of what Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir has to offer. Bursting with flavors of spice, cranberry, light blueberry and strawberry, it displays great balance and a lingering finish.
