2019 Ancien Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir


Some wines cannot be shipped to some states

Current state:


The 2019 growing season provided the third year in a row of generous and well timed winter moisture.  The result was very nice growth with well balanced vines free of excess stress.  This is what we are always after, a happy vine dedicated to its fruit results in the most flavorful wine in general.  We saw few heat spikes but adequate warmth in the season to produce ripe flavored fruit.

Pinot Noir

The nose greets with notes of cassis, Indian spice, and hints of incense.  Fresh dark fruits lead the palate, and the focus settles on ripe flavors of blackberry and currants spiced with peppercorn/allspice.  Velvety and softly chewy tannins emphasize structure, while ever-present acidity balances and brightens.  The spicy aromatics and flavors continue through the long finish.
