Bright aromas of cherry cola, and red raspberry leap from the glass. The red berry fruit aromas carry through to the palate with notes of baking spice and vanilla that add complexity to the wine.

Winemaker Notes
Our 2014 Reserve Pinot Noir came from young vines comprised of clones 23, and 31 which are known for their small clusters and high flavor concentration. Bright aromas of cherry cola, and red raspberry leap from the glass. The red berry fruit aromas carry through to the palate with notes of baking spice and vanilla that add complexity to the wine. The dark tannins give this Pinot Noir a full, soft palate with a delicate finish.

Vineyard Notes
Located in California’s central coast region of Santa Barbara County, the Sta. Rita Hills AVA offers an ideal environment for growing cool-climate varietals. Foggy conditions and steady Pacific breezes combined with nutrient-poor soil make the AVA one of the world’s premier Chardonnay and Pinot Noir producing regions. Wines from this area are renown for their intense flavors, firm structure and ability to pair with a wide variety of cuisine.
