2013 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County -90pts


Schaefer On Wine: "Lighter in color than most, it shows strawberry and cinnamon on the nose. Both red and black berry fruit on the palate, the wine is boisterous and generous with hints of characteristic earthiness. Well structured, it has the gravitas to age for many more years. It shows a certain finesse that follows through to the finish." Dennis Schaefer SB News Press 06/14/18

The 2013 vintage from Premier Vineyard in Los Alamos shows off both the elegant, feminine side of Pinot Noir, along with the ripe structure with good acidity from the steep hillside vineyard. Beautifully balanced, it was fermented 100% whole cluster. A blend of Swiss clone 2A and Dijon 115.
