Vinous 88 - Made famous by the movie Sideways, the Hitching Post produces Pinots like nobody's business. The Hometown layers cherry, currant and pepper with an aroma that will make you want to grab a straw and the bottle, forget the glass.


Vinous 88 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2013 Pinot Noir Hometown is a very pretty entry-level offering from Hitching Post. Partial aging in stainless steel keeps the flavors bright and nuanced throughout, with plenty of sweet red cherry, cherry pit, mint and spice nuances that come through. A dollop of Valdiguie rounds out the blend. At $21 a bottle, the Hometown is one of the best values in California Pinot Noir."

According to International Wine Cellar - "Vivid red. Primary red berry and cherry skin aromas offer straightforward appeal. Tangy cherry and redcurrant flavors show good clarity and lift, with a peppery element adding bite. Finishes clean and slightly tart, with no obvious tannins and an echo of peppery spices."

Winemakers Notes - "HOMETOWN is an early bottling of our Santa Barbara cuvee and showcases the delicious fruit of young Pinot Noir. This three valley blend is made from grapes we source from vineyards near Los Alamos, Santa Maria and Sta. Rita Hills." 13.5% ABV.
