The 2017 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is a gorgeous appellation wine that punches well above its weight. Then again, most of the fruit is from Domaine de la Côte, with a healthy dollop (20%) of grapes from Sanford & Benedict. Dark cherry, plum, spice, licorice and menthol infuse this radiant Pinot with tremendous fruit density and power. Dark cherry, plum, licorice and spice are pushed forward. There is so much to like.

Cherry with notes of berries and slight earth. A delight.

Fruit is fresh, but quite rich. This is very good wine, and everything speaks to quality & balance. Darker fruit and black tea notes emerge on the back end. Tannins seem a little lost, but this is also a very young wine. Definitely worth following.

Absolutely fascinating Pinot. It’s both full bodied and loaded with greener herbal notes at the same time. Nose opens with savory red fruit, tons of herbal notes, and tobacco which meld into flavors of Earl Grey tea and spice on the palate. Grainy tannins and mouth puckering acidity blend all of this together providing a pleasing, succulent experience. I love the complexity here. Notes of tea really stand out. 2017 vintage on Feb 2, 2020

We had the 2017 Vintage on 1/33-24/20. I am increasing consumption of Santa Barbara wines as we are headed there in a few months. I hope there are better wines than this. Clove on the bouquet. Dark fruit and pepper on the palate. Short finish.
