Description

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 aromatics, vibrant acidity and notes of smoke, black cherry and cola. Enjoy!

Wine Critic Reviews
"...positively stellar. Rich, ample and explosive, the 2021 offers up a heady mélange of blue/purplish fruit, lavender, menthol, sage and sweet spice. The Fiddlestix is the most overt and satisfying of the Fess Parker Pinots. I loved it." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "Jubilant aromas of fresh cherry, black raspberry, red currant and red flowers make for an intense nose on this single-vineyard bottling. Rich and powerful, the palate has bold flavors of strawberry and baking spice." ~ Wine Enthusiast "Fresh and ripe, with pomegranate and red cherry pâté de fruit notes that are nicely focused, carried by a racy sassafras accent through the mouthwatering, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2028." ~ Wine Spectator
