Our 2012 Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir offers what we consider the hallmarks of our AVA: balance, complexity and the ever-present “Santa Maria spice”.  When compared to our single vineyard offerings, this wine is less tightly wound offering enjoyment at an earlier age but still built for the long haul with excellent structure and backbone of acidity.

More about this wine

Winemaker Notes
The nose of this deep ruby red wine offers a mix of black cherry, pomegranate, cassis, black tea, 5-spice and a hint of underbrush. Framed by a small amount of new oak, the palate confirms a mixture of black and red fruit, cola, anise, black tea and a hint of mulling spice. Fine tannic structure, balanced acidity and a lingering finish round out the experience. We suggest decanting for two hours before enjoying.
