Winemaker's Notes

"The deep ruby/purple-colored 2001 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara offers an excellent bouquet of strawberry jam, plums, cherries, earth, and smoke. Luscious, plump, and fleshy, it's a sexy Pinot to drink over the next 2-3 years. Fortunately, there are 9,000 cases."

Brighter cherry and raspberry flavors shine through on the palate with the inclusion of more of the cold climate Santa Rita Hills fruit. Excellent with duck, lamb and anything you would care to barbecue!

Vineyard Sources: 36% Ashley's Vineyard from Fess Parker Estate in Santa Rita Hills, 22% Bien Nacido Vineyard, 20% White Hills Vineyard, 16% Stephen's Vineyard & 6% Lake Marie Vineyard in Santa Maria Valley.
