Winemaker Notes

The high-toned red fruit aromas counter-balance the spicy and earthy texture. The wine has a suave texture and is quite earthy. This wine would probably benefit from ageing.

This is the third vintage of sommelier Raj Parr and winemaker Sashi Moorman’s estate project in the Santa Rita Hills, using vineyards they acquired after Evening Land exited California to focus on Oregon wines. Memorious grows in dark, heavy clay, the vineyard facing west; Moorman finds it gives a more structured wine than some of his other sites in the region. There’s a captivating discretion to this wine, its red fruit layered with umami tones of salt and kelp, as crunchy and savory as a radish just pulled from the earth, the flavors powerful and bright in the end.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From a tiny 3.5-acre plot in the Sta. Rita Hills that's southwest facing and battered by the incessant winds of the region, the 2013 Pinot Noir Memorious is the last to be harvested and, according to Sashi, tends to be more burly and structured due to its think skins. It has the classic Domaine de la Cote bouquet of rose petal, salt block, underbrush and strawberries to go with a medium-bodied, layered and pretty style on the palate. The acidity is nicely integrated, it has plenty of fruit through the mid-palate and a clean finish. Already drinking nicely, it should evolve nicely through 2021.

Domaine de la Cote, California
Domaine de la Côte translates literally to Estate of the Slope. Our Domaine is a collection of vineyards planted over 60 acres of a south-facing slope at the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. Memorious, Bloom’s Field, Siren’s Call, Clos Juliet, and La Côte are the names of our vineyards. Rising to an elevation of 700 feet above the Santa Ynez River, the Domaine sits atop a 25 million year old seabed, 7 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The vineyards are planted entirely to California heritage selections at extremely high vine densities between 4,000 and 7,000 vines per acre. Although the Domaine spans a mere 60 acres, the diversity of its climats is staggering: each vineyard has a unique geology, aspect, elevation and microclimate. Such distinct expressions of site in such close proximity is unparalleled in California. The Domaine was organically farmed from 2007 through 2016. The 2017 growing season marks our transition to biodynamic practices. We make wine with the philosophy of “add nothing; take nothing away.” The wines are vinified, raised, and bottled at our winery in Lompoc, California, 3 miles from the Domaine.

A superior source of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills is the coolest, westernmost sub-region of the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation within Santa Barbara County. This relatively new AVA is unquestionably one to keep an eye on.

The climate of Sta. Rita Hills is a natural match for Chardonnay and Pinot noir, thanks to the crisp ocean breezes and well-drained, limestone-rich calcareous soil. Here, grapes ripen just enough, while retaining brisk acidity and harmonious balance.
