Our ‘village’ Pinot Noir is vinified with the same level of detail as our single vineyard wines. The 2013 vintage is a blend of 6 different vineyards from the southwestern part of the Sta. Rita Hills including Bentrock, Rita’s Crown, Rinconada, and Mt. Carmel. This wine showcases the freshness, finesse, and exuberance of the appellation.
Brimming with high-toned, youthful aromatics, the 2013 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir leads with crunchy red fruits of pomegranate, wild strawberry, and sun-warmed raspberry. The exuberantly fruited nose is undergirded with orange zest, black tea, tea rose, and faint hints of clove and spice. The bright, vivacious palate carries a taut mineral streak through to a lengthy finish lifting the red fruit notes with a whisper of anise.
