2016 Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara County
SANTA BARBARA COUNTY
The 2016 Pinot Noir shows cherry, sage and orange peel aromatics. Core flavors of sweet red fruit are supported by black tea and Asian spice. Vibrant acidity, and partial stem inclusion provide structure throughout, leading to a long and savory finish. Though this wine should age gracefully for years to come, it is made to be open and enjoyable in its youth.
Review to be published in June 2019.
