When it comes to making great Pinot Noir, it is critical to source fruit from vineyards that are in a genuinely cool climate and that have soils that are ideal for the grape. Representing this concept precisely is our new BATF approved "Santa Rita Hills" appellation. Located in the cool ocean influenced, western end of the Santa Ynez Valley, the region promises, in my opinion, to be one the most profound areas in the New World for the growing of world class Pinot Noir.
