This spiced, barrel-aged red begs for a crackling wood fire...
- 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 (and a gold medal winner!) – 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.
The wine will age well for 6-8 years. It is soft in the mouth with lots of upfront fruit and built to be consumed early in its life, so open and enjoy now.
Open it. Pour it into a nice glass. Share with family and friends. Can benefit from some decanting/aeration but not needed.
