The Dragonette 2018 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is crafted from several of the finest vineyards in the region, including the old vines from the famous Sanford & Benedict Vineyard, as well as Bentrock, La Rinconada, John Sebastiano, Radian, Spear, Fiddlestix, and Donnachadh. The multiple vineyards combine to create great complexity and balance.

On the nose, this Pinot Noir shows fresh red fruits (black cherries, red fleshed plums and strawberries) along with rhubarb, baking spices, and hints of fresh basil and thyme. The palate is velvety smooth with concentrated red fruit flavors that are lifted by fresh acidity and blood orange citrus. The fine, supple tannins provide structure and focus on the long finish. Enjoy!
