A standout winery from the wine ghetto in (not so) beautiful Lompoc. While this may be the less majestic looking spot in Santa Barbara County, it’s one of the greatest spots on earth for Pinot Noir. Vineyards in Santa Rita Hills keep putting out palate poems like this bottle, and doing so at reasonable prices.
Taut red fruit with layers of wild rose and honeysuckle. It is a lithe expression of Pinot Noir that offers great finesse and clarity.
