Making appellation level bottling is great fun for winemakers. Rather than the more limited set of colors provided for single vineyard bottling, many site expressions work together as do many colors arrayed on a painter’s palette. Floral contributions from here, minerality from there, and so it goes.

Mostly younger vines at Bien Nacido provided the framework for this Pinot Noir, with a fraction of super coastal Puerta Del Mar fruit and a discreet but powerful contribution from Fe Ciega in Sta Rita Hills. The wine shows Santa Barbara County’s potential for citrus and floral lift, and soft contoured red fruits that close out juicy. That’s enriched by lively white pepper and a rich umami quality that shows itself with some air.
