Rideau’s 2014 Pinot Noir is from the famed La Encantada Vineyard located in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. This well-established, organically-farmed vineyard is in the crème-de-la-crème of AVA's for Pinot Noir. On the nose you can find an abundance of classic Sta. Rita Hills characteristics including forest floor, flint, and black/white pepper notes. On the palate, you'll find a rich set of flavors full of raspberry, cranberry, white pepper, spice and a hint of cocoa powder. The wine has great fruit concentration and excellent structure that supports a wonderful, balanced acidity which follows through on the finish. Bottled unfiltered, using only native yeast, the terroir is further highlighted through their process of whole cluster fermentation.
