2013 Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir
Santa Barbara County
Santa Barbara County, CA
This wine is composed of barrels from Dierberg, Drum Canyon and Pence Ranch.
It exhibits natural complexity from the combination of these high-end vineyards. Color is medium ruby, the nose is fresh with moderate ripeness. On the palate there is appealing round Pinot flavors and a taut finish with nice closing flavors. Tangy. Good karmic Pinot energy. Deep down there are some damp, musky accents that surface periodically.
This is an unfettered true to form wine, no new oak / all new wine.
