We've worked with Garey Vineyard for many years now to produce Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir of distinctive character and ageworthy structure. This beautiful 2017 vintage has a brightness and clarity to its red fruit, with gorgeous notes of cranberry and underripe strawberry supported by a succulent acid line. We've already received 92 points for the wine from Matt Kettmann at Wine Enthusiast Magazine, who wrote of it:
"Tangy red plum, cracked peppercorns and pine needle show on the nose of this bottling, which explores the lighter, savory side of Pinot Noir. The palate intrigues with an array of greener flavors, including thyme, charred pasilla chile and cracked pepper, set against a tart raspberry base."
