100% Pinot Noir, Rancho La ViƱa, Santa Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County

The aromatics are built around a definite mineral streak: wet concrete.  This is balanced by a spectrum of plums: white and red, fresh and reduced.  Sweet spices further complicate the nose: allspice, cloves, cinnamon, a pinch of black pepper.  A mouthwatering palate, midweight with a gentle framing of tannin.  Fresh, tart fruits (raspberries, strawberries, pomegranate) are tempered by sweet, spiced fruit, reminiscent of Fig Newtons.
