Vineyards
Santa Barbara's cool coastal climate of sunshine, sea breezes and fog makes it the perfect place to grow Pinot Noir with concentrated fruit flavors.

Winemaking
This wine was fermented in small vats and the fruit gently handled to extract optimal color and flavor without bitter tannins. Aromas of sweet strawberry, rose petal and tomato vine are subtle and highlighted by mushroom nuances.

Tasting Notes
The fruit forward flavors of ripe cherry and strawberry are delivered with a smooth mouthfeel and lingering silky tannins.
