Winemaker Notes

Rancho Santa Rosa Pinot Noir embodies the essence of the cool climate Sta. Rita Hills. Our 2018 opens with aromas of ripe fruit, dark boysenberry, pomegranate, and ribbons of cherry. On the palate, this pinot noir offers classic notes of black pepper, boysenberry, plum and dark cherry with a soft finish of dark cacao and pomegranate acidity.

With moderate tannins, balanced acidity, and lush fruit on the finish, this wine is perfect alongside cedar plank grilled salmon, pork tenderloin, or BBQ pork ribs.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Lincourt Rancho Santa Rosa Pinot Noir is fresh, precise, and lively. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of tart cherries and savory spices. Pair it with a serving of rosemary and garlic-accented roast leg of lamb. (Tasted: March 24, 2022, Rutherford, CA)

A fresh, savory-edged version, with copious herb and pepper accents throughout, which mix well with the core of bitter cherry and raspberry fruit. Friendly, open finish. Drink now

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.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
