Winemaker Notes

This earthy, meaty Pinot Noir offers notes of cherry, leather, raspberry, mushroom and peppermint. It shows mild tannins and medium-plus acidity.

2015 marks our 2nd vintage doing what we said we'd probably never venture to do - make red wine. Specifically Pinot Noir.This bottling is a blend of the renowned Bien Nacido Vineyard & Solomon Hills Vineyard from the Santa Maria Valley AVA (hence, its concise name: 'SMV'). These are two vineyards that we have had the pleasure of working with via Chardonnay from since 2013.

These Pinot's are built to age but, will unravel themselves for enjoyment later in the year. Or decant and enjoy over a few days.

Critical Acclaim

Vinous
The 2015 Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley) offers lovely depth and nuance in its red cherry, plum, lavender and mint flavors. Silky, perfumed and gracious, with all of the focus that is typical of these wines, the 2015 remains wonderfully translucent, delivering plenty of flavor intensity for a wine that initially comes across as weightless. The Santa Maria Valley Pinot is a blend of old-vine fruit from Solomon Hills and Bien Nacido, done with 100% whole clusters.

Nikki and Jeff Nelson were brought together by a mutual passion for wine and food, and together have joined with Dragonette Cellars winemaker, Brandon Sparks-Gillis, to craft two very different and superb, small production Chardonnays from the Santa Rita Hills. Now only in their second vintage, the wines are still nearly impossible to find, but upon tasting, nearly everyone is an immediate convert. They blend two stylistically different wines, from seven vineyards, with a common pursuit of regional typicity. Little intervention, minimal oak, no additives or machines…just pure expressions of Chardonnay, created by nature. In essence, they let the vineyards speak, and thus create liquid from farming.

A lesser-known but elite AVA within the larger Santa Barbara district, the Santa Maria Valley AVA runs precisely west to east starting near the coast. The valley funnels cool, Pacific Ocean air to the vineyards more inland, allowing grapes a longer hang time to ripen evenly and achieve their full potential by harvest time. Combined with minimal rainfall, consistent warm sunshine, and well-drained soils, it is an ideal environment for grape growing.

Many of the wineries here are small and highly respected, having established a reputation in the 1970s and 80s for producing excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. More recently, Syrah has also proven quite successful in the region. Many vineyards are owned by growers who sell their grapes to other wineries, so it is common to see the same vineyard name on bottlings from different wineries. Bien Nacido Vineyard is perhaps the best-known and most prestigious.

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.”
