This is a sophisticated, harmonious blend of five great vineyards from two appellations in Santa Barbara County: Solomon Hills Vineyard and Gold Coast Vineyard from Santa Maria Valley blend beautifully with Peake Ranch, Zotovich, and Drum Canyon Vineyards from Sta. Rita Hills. Each vineyard brings to this blend nuances of its appellation. Santa Maria Valley shows through in the fragrant and perfumed nose with a touch of spice, while Sta. Rita Hills brings additional structure, weight, and power.
This Pinot Noir is very versatile and will pair with and enhance a variety of cuisines. Particularly good pairings include roast chicken, grilled salmon, Santa Maria-style tri-tip, and mushroom & prosciutto pizza.
