Sta. Rita Hills is one of the world’s best cool-climate growing regions of Pinot Noir. What makes this area truly unique is the purely East/West valleys that funnel cooling coastal fog and wind to the vines, producing elegant, distinctive Pinot Noir. A compelling nose of lifted red fruits, rhubarb and sour cherry, with a hint of citrus blossom. On the palate this wine comes alive with a bright energy, structured tannins, and a hint of chalky minerality. A perfect comparison against its northern counterparts.
