Wine Review: This bright ruby colored Pinot opens with a fresh red raspberry bouquet with hints of clove, vanilla, and cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a juicy and savory red cherry with notes of black pepper. The finish is dry and nicely prolonged. We thought this would pair well with pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Our 2007 Pinot Noir is sourced from a blend of premium Santa Barbara County vineyards, resulting in an elegant and complex wine. Softly textured in the mouth, the 2007 vintage boasts aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry, cranberry and pomegranate, with hints of sweet baking spices. The plush tannins are balanced by juicy berry acidity, and flavors of ripe plums, blackberry and tea linger on the palate. Full-bodied and luscious, our Santa Barbara Pinot Noir is a perfect match with grilled lamb chops with rosemary and garlic, salmon filets, roast pork loin, or pasta alla carbonara.
