Gorgeous, bright aromas of fresh cherry, alpine strawberries, spice cake, white pepper, and roses. The very seductive aromas inform the palate which is supple, serious, and wonderfully fresh. The 2019 will pair better with heartier, more savory fare and although charming now, it will continue to improve over the next several years.

Rich aromas of black cherry, cola, nutmeg and snickerdoodle remain fresh and lively on the nose of this bottling. Brisk acidity frames the dark-cherry flavors, which are enhanced by hints of vanilla and more cola.

The 2019 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills comes mainly from younger vines in the Sanford & Benedict (44%) and La Rinconada (56%) vineyards planted to a wide range of clonal selections. Pale ruby-purple, it's scented of red and black berries, orange peel, forest floor and bitters. The palate is open and spicy, with a silky texture, refreshing acidity and a touch of classy baking spice from its 11 months in 25% new French oak. It's a bright, pure style this vintage and excellent quality for an appellation bottling. 88,548 cases produced.

Another great value out there for readers who love impeccably made, elegant Pinot Noir is the 2019 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills. Revealing a slightly deep ruby hue as well as ample darker cherry and currant fruits, it's medium-bodied and has a spicy, complex, earthy bouquet, outstanding balance, and a great finish.

The 2019 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is a gorgeous, entry-level offering. Crushed flowers, lavender, rose petal and mint all grace this wonderfully translucent Pinot Noir. The purity of the fruit is just remarkable. This appellation-level wine is a blend from La Rinconada and Sanford & Benedict.
