Grown on a steep, rocky slope on the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills, this Bentrock Vineyard Pinot Noir exhibits the earthy, crushed stone minerality that we look for in great Pinot Noir.
This 2018 Spear Vineyard Pinot Noir has a bright ruby red color. The nose is very expressive and unmistakably Pinot Noir with pomegranate, clove and earthy spice. I also pick up notes of black tea and underbrush from 30% whole cluster fermentation. On the palate, the wine has a distinctively light body and delicacy that is in contrast to the intensity of the flavor of the wine. There is a definite savory quality on the finish that is due to that stem inclusion during fermentation. This wine should age gracefully for 7-10 years.
Our new release of the Second Street Cuvée is a more even blend of Syrah and Grenache than the last few vintages along with a touch of Mourvédre.
Pulled from completely neutral barrels, this wine shows off the rich, jammy fruit profile of Shokrian and the lean, earthy profile of the Zotovitch.
It has an expressive nose of blackberries, blueberries and black cherry. Complimenting the fruit are aromas of leather and spice and a woodsy, earthiness from the use of stems. This is rich, earthy, food friendly Syrah at it’s best.
This wine has an inky, dark red to purple color. On the nose, classic dark-skinned fruits like black cherry, plum and black berries mingle with dried meats and leathery earthiness. Stem inclusion is obvious, adding to the spicy/earthy aroma as well as adding a good dose of tannin. On the palate, more of those dark fruits are present wrapped in a rich, velvety swath of tannin. The finish on this wine is very long and I especially love the well-developed integration of fruit, stems and acid, all working in harmony with one another to help it linger on your palate well after you’ve swallowed.
