Winemaker's Notes:

For more than seven years we have been sourcing Pinot Noir fruit from this world-renowned vineyard. This will be our first attempt at a reserve vineyard designated Pinot Noir from this vineyard and we could not have picked a better vintage from which to launch this program. On the nose you will find spice, leather, earthiness, dark cherries, strawberries, light sage and cola notes. Intense, rich, complex flavors of dark cherries, cranberries, spice, leather, earthiness, mint and subtle oak all point to a very promising future for this wine.

About Fess Parker:

When Fess Parker was cast in the roll of Davy Crockett in the mid-1950's, it caused an international sensation and changed his life forever. So, too, did the purchase of 714 acres in the Santa Ynez Valley change the course of the Parker family's history.

Realizing the potential of Santa Barbara County as a premium grape-growing region, Fess and his son, Eli, originally set out in 1989 to plant a small vineyard and sell fruit to local producers. But, as Fess' daughter, Ashley explains, "Fess is from Texas, so he can't do anything small." The Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard now farms almost 700 acres on four vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County.
