Deovlet Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2013
Throughout the winemaking process, to produce a seamless balance between grape variety and site, the wines are carefully handcrafted with minimal intervention. Bringing together passion, artistry, and intuition, we are always leaning on the history of this ageless craft and never forgetting ‘those who went before us and showed us the way.'
Pinot Noir is the second-most planted grape in Santa Barbara County, just behind Chardonnay. It thrives in cooler areas of the region, namely in the of the Sta. Rita Hills, which is part of Santa Barbara’s larger Santa Ynez Valley sub-appellation. Thought for decades to be too cool for viticulture, Sta. Rita Hills began to gain notoriety in the 1970’s, thanks to the pioneering work of Richard Sandford and Michael Benedict, among others.
Santa Barbara Pinot Noir dances across the palate with vivid red fruit and spice. Precision, bright acidity, elegance and fruit-driven silkiness make Santa Barbara Pinot delightfully enjoyable, whether on their own or with a variety of dishes.
