2017 WALT Wines Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills

$39.95 $44.00 (-9%)

Grown in vineyards sitting at 1000 feet, close to the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara, this Pinot shows the full maritime exposure of fog and cooling breezes. Perfectly balanced and poised, International Wine Report scored this 93 points,“A brilliant whiff of salinity greets you aromatically as the wine shows bright red fruits that mingle with shades of kumquat rind and earthy undertones that build in the glass. The palate shows off a silky texture and wonderfully soft mouthfeel. Black tea, exotic spices and shades of cran-raspberry puree all mingle together nicely on the palate.“ A brilliant Pinot from Santa Barbara showing all that “Sideways” was referencing.
