Old-vine Pinot Noir crafted by your master of Central Coast reds

    • The very first vintage of Rick's old-vine Pinot Noir - harvested from the breezy oceanside hills of Santa Barbara County.  
    • Rick let nature do its best work and made your elegant Central Coast red with minimal intervention – after harvest, he gathered up all of his grapes into oak barrels, and let every delicate fruit flavor build to a crescendo of smoky dark cherries. Mmmm.
    • This is a rich, complex Pinot for an incredible value – so silky, lush and round, it'll wrap you in warmth like a winter sweater. If you're hankering for perfect holiday wine, you've found it.

Aging advice
The wine will age for 7-10 years.

Serving advice
Open 1 week after receiving your shipment and enjoy.

Local food match
Monterey Bay salmon grilled over oak chips and topped with a lemon ginger glaze. Risotto with wild mushrooms makes for a nice evening. Roasted beets with Pecorino and fresh basil is not a bad combo with the wine either...
