2017 RANCHO LA VIÑA PINOT NOIR
Planted in 2005, this remarkable vineyard is located at the far western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation where the vines are fully exposed to cool winds from the Pacific Ocean. Sourced from Clone 115, this Pinot Noir features aromas of dark cherry, plum and subtle earth tones enhanced by hints of smokiness, baking spices and floral notes. Flavors of cherry, blueberry compote and allspice culminate in a long finish with a hint of cola. The wine’s velvety richness is nicely balanced by the bright acidity typical of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. Additional cellaring will add even more complexity to this wine, assuring excellent aging potential. More info.
2016 "A" CUVÉE SYRAH
This Syrah combines fruit from two Los Alamos Valley estates—51% Watch Hill Vineyard and 49% Thompson Vineyard—and showcases the beautiful aromatics and flavors found in cool climate Syrah. The wine leads with rich, concentrated aromas of black raspberry and blackberry jam along with accents of cranberry, sage and vanilla bean. Vibrant flavors of juicy blackberry and plum are enveloped in a luxurious mouthfeel and velvety tannins, which are exquisitely balanced by bright natural acidity. The plush texture and complex profile will only be enhanced with additional time in the cellar. More info.
