About the wine

Rich, delicious red just in time for sweater weather
  • Smooth, sumptuous and rich 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 (it won a gold medal in vintages past!) – 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.

Best before
The wine is made in a fruit forward style that will age well for 4-5 years. It is a soft plush style of wine.

Serving advice
Open it when you are feeling good and want some pleasure in your glass.

Food match
Wild goose sausage on the grill. Oak smoked baby back ribs are a nice compliment.

Meet the winemaker - Rick Boyer

  • We’ve been looking for an experienced winemaker familiar with the
    Central Coast and Monterey area in particular – we knew Rick fit the bill. He's farmed gorgeous, cool SoCal vineyards for over 25 years!
  • He had been making wine his whole life, but got out of the biz (to start a bonsai
    business) because the risk and middlemen got in the way of his passion. He's back in, thanks to you!
  • What makes Rick's wines special?  "I take a different perspective compared to a lot of other wines out there - like Euro style; feminine; delicate - like focused generous reds, focused complex whites; plenty of persistence, fruit, and flavor."
