Technical Info

Tasting notes

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noirs stand out for their effusive aromatics. Our 2014 is fragrant with aromas of
blackberry, cherry and tobacco. These aromas carry through to the palate leading into lean, juicy flavors of
black cherry and cranberry. The firm tannins build the structure of this wine as it finishes with cocoa powder
notes.The wine also has the intensity one would expect from low yields and the fine structure that comes
from a cool climate. Pair this wine with pork tenderloin, salmon or a spinach salad with blackberry dressing.

Vineyard and Winemaking

The Rancho Santa Rosa East and West Blocks are located in the Sta. Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County.
Climbing from 500 to 1,000 feet above sea level, these hilly sites are treated as a series of individual
micro-vineyards delineated by soil, exposure, elevation, grade, rootstock and clones. The well-draining soils and
cool maritime climate make this a perfect spot for Pinot Noir. This Pinot shows the pure fruit and vibrancy
characteristic of its cool climate origins. The fruit was hand-picked and hand-sorted in the vineyard in the cool
morning hours to preserve the aromatics. The clusters were then de-stemmed with no crushing. The must was
cold-soaked in open-top fermenters for four days and then allowed to ferment with native yeast. The wine was aged
for 18 months in French oak, 25% new, prior to bottling.
