Winemaker Notes

The nose of this wine exhibits spice, forest floor, rose petals and what can only be described as Santa Maria Funk - that combination of sour cherry and sous-bois that is found in few other Pinot Noir growing regions. On the palate expect sour cherry, smoky mushrooms and dried rosemary.

Wine Enthusiast
Josh Klapper made six barrels of this wine from coveted old vines at Bien Nacido Vineyard. The result is an exciting, focused expression of minerality, with wet cement prominent on the nose alongside black cherry, alpine strawberry and a touch of vanilla dust. Light and lithe in mouthfeel yet still packed with tons of flavor, the old vines unleash cranberry, pomegranate, orange rind, thyme, bay leaf and eucalyptus flavors.

Timbre, California
Timbre is the "color" of musical sound. It’s how two voices express their individuality, even when singing the same note. When you hear Robert Plant, Amy Winehouse, or Nina Simone, you know who is singing, even if it’s a song you’ve never heard before. What makes a voice unique and recognizable is Timbre.

They source fruit from some of the best vineyards in Santa Barbara County and across the Central Coast, but they don’t own any of those vineyards, so what differentiates their wines from others sourced from the same vineyard sites? There are many factors, from picking decisions to fermentation, oak, when to rack, when to bottle as well as intangible, indescribable elements. The concept is that those intangibles have a big impact and, collectively, they make up the Timbre of their wines.

As a terroir-driven winery, we strive to make wines that are expressive of the places and times from which they came, but inevitably, as winemakers, they are channeling these vineyard sites through their own experiences and adding their own mark, their Timbre, on the resulting wines.

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.
