Production Notes
The Rancho Santa Rosa East and West Blocks are located in the Sta. Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County. Climbing from 500 to 1,000 feet above sea level, these hilly sites are treated as a series of individual micro-vineyards delineated by soil, exposure, elevation, grade, rootstock and clones. The well-draining soils and cool maritime climate make this a perfect spot for Pinot Noir. This Pinot shows the pure fruit and vibrancy characteristic of its cool climate origins. The fruit was hand-picked and hand-sorted in the vineyard in the cool morning hours to preserve the aromatics. The clusters were then de-stemmed with no crushing. The must was cold-soaked in open-top fermenters for four days and then allowed to ferment with native yeast. The wine was aged in French Oak Barrels, 30% new, for 15 months.
Vineyard Notes
The 2013 vintage was quite abundant due to the great weather, with mild rain during the first part of spring and only a few incidents of frost before bud break. Conditions remained ideal from bloom to set only minimally burdened by the typical afternoon winds that sweep through Sta. Rita Hills. The yields were high in quality and quantity, emulating the 2012 vintage.
