LONG AWAITED 2009 CARGASACCHI PINOT NOIR IS HERE
It’s been eight long months since the 2008 Cargasacchi Pinot Noir sold out, leaving a lengthy gap for our many fans of this wine. As you can imagine, Deborah and I are especially pleased to announce the release of the 2009 Cargasacchi Pinot Noir. We hope you’ll agree it was worth the wait! The wine packs the incredible richness and complexity Cargasacchi is known for, along with intense dark cherry, earth tone and spice components. Only 169 cases were made, so we recommend placing orders early before this vintage too is sold out.
Exceptionally aromatic and complex, this wine offers classic Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir character from the 2009 vintage. Intense aromas of dark cherry mingle with rich earth tones and hints of black tea, chanterelle mushroom and white pepper. Subtle French oak expression adds a touch of spice and a toasted almond component. The flavors offer layers of complexity, supported by a remarkably rich mid palate, smooth tannins and a luscious dark cherry flavor on the finish. The components will continue to intensify and develop, becoming even more complex with additional bottle age. 169 cases made. Click here for more details or to order.
Founded by pioneer Uriel Nielson in 1964, this property is Santa Barbara County’s oldest vineyard. This Chardonnay is rich and beautifully balanced with fresh aromas of Golden Delicious apple, pear and peach accented by hints of honeysuckle and spice. These components will gradually evolve into aromas of honey, pear and hazelnut as the wine develops. A silky, elegant texture intertwined with a thread of natural acidity carry through to a rich, seamless finish. As experienced in past vintages of Nielson Chardonnay, this wine will enjoy exceptional ageability. 238 cases made. Click here for more details or to order.
This is a delicious, refreshing rosé made in a dry style from Syrah grapes from the Watch Hill Vineyard in Los Alamos Valley. Look for fresh aromatics of strawberry and cherry with a touch of watermelon and spice. The creamy mouthfeel is nicely balanced by a lift of crisp acidity. Only 23 cases made so it won’t last long! Available only at the tasting room and our website. Click here for more details or to order.
