Description

Details

WE 93 WA 91 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - "Berry fruit leather, raspberry iced tea and dark spices weave together on the intriguing nose of this wine, which is as good if not better than similar wines from the appellation charging twice the price. Roasted figs and black cardamom rise on the palate, yet the wine remains light on its feet." Editor's Choice!

According to Wine Advocate - "Kicking off the Pinot Noirs and coming all from sandy soils, the 2012 Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley is another rocking value from this estate. Exhibiting classy cassis, toasted bread, creamy licorice and loads of spice, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated and ripe Pinot Noir has solid mid-palate depth and a great texture. Spending 15 months in 20% new French oak, enjoy it over the coming 3-4 years."

According to Wine Spectator - "Presents a tight, crisp, focused band of red berry and blueberry flavors, with gravelly earth, dried herb and cedar notes. Returning to the snappy berry elements on the finish. Drink now through 2021."

According to Connoisseurs Guide - "There are times, and this is one of them, when a winery's large-production, appellation bottling outpoints its vineyard-designate. Look for fairly well-defined ripe black-cherry fruit and a touch of creamy oak as the central themes here, and if on the broad and beamy side, the wine never drifts into excess and holds its central fruit into a mid-length finish. Its tag-end tannins guarantee a few years of aging potential."

Tasting Notes - "The Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir displays aromas of dark berry and cherry accented by hints of floral and mineral. The flavor profile has a core of dark berry and dark cherry with hints of earth and brown spices, backed by a smooth, silky and long finish. The wine is styled to highlight the vivid aromas and flavors of our cool-climate fruit, enhanced by careful winemaking." 14.5% ABV.
