Fruit from two of the oldest vineyards within the Sta. Rita Hills AVA produced this excellent Pinot Noir. It displays a vivid ruby red hue and bright, fragrant, fruit-forward aromas of black cherry, red raspberry, blackberry and pomegranate along with a whiff of rose hips tea. Palate wise, the Gainey Vineyard 2103 Pinot Noir delivers intense, juicy, strawberry, cherry, plum and blackberry flavors that evolve into a zesty, tea-leaf spice tone en route to a long, fruitful and mineral-tinged finish.
Bottled unfiltered, this 100% Pinot Noir was aged for eleven months in 22% new French Oak. Try with John's Spicy Garlic Shrimp or the Rack of Lamb.
