TAZ Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2003
from Central Coast, California
In blending this 2003 Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir, we pulled together fruit from Santa Maria Valley and the Santa Rita Hills-two very different sites with contrasting signatures."The Fiddlestix Vineyard in Santa Rita gives dark fruits and brooding flavors, a concentrated and rich expression of Pinot Noir."The North CanyonVineyard in Santa Maria Valley delivers more delicate accents, with soft, pretty cinnamon and strawberry notes."When blended, you get a blackberry burst in the wine with cola spice and juicy jammy berry notes supported by a balancing act of tannins and structure. The resulting wine has breadth and an evenness we strive for with this tricky variety. -Natasha Boffman, Winemaker

We selected this wine from a variety of wine offered tonight. To our delight its aromatic fragrance and color was rich and transparent. As we put this glass of wine to our lips what a delight the taste was smooth, fruity and light. For our dinner entree we selected of Salmon Portofino that was smothered in fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, asparagus and served with angel hair pasta that was topped with a delicious marinara sauce at Ciao Bella, Italian restaurant in Tustin, CA. This TAZ Pinor Noir wine was a delightful unexpected treat with each savory sip.
