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. The Parker West vineyard is a dynamic site planted in sandy soils on a windswept hillside several miles from the cold Pacific Ocean.

This Pinot Noir exhibits a true sense of place offering forward dark cherry, raspberry and floral notes supported by attractive mineral and spicy notes. This is a structured Pinot Noir that retains elegance and gracefulness due to bright natural acidity.

Wine Critic Reviews
"Raspberry and cranberry aromas are lifted by rose petals and crushed rocks on the dynamic nose of this bottling. Pleasantly dense and rich cherry flavors on the palate are dusted in cardamom and more rose elements." ~ Wine Enthusiast "...a very pretty, savory wine that reflects both the location of this site and the inclusion of 30% whole clusters. Sweet dried cherry, spice, mint, leather and tobacco all grace this aromatic, mid-weight Pinot." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "The 2021 Pinot Noir Parker West has pretty cherry and strawberry fruits as well as some leafy herbs and salty, almost gamey nuances that are classic Sta. Rita Hills. It’s medium-bodied, has fine tannins, and outstanding length." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
