Santa Barbara Pinot Noir 2008
This bright, versatile Pinot Noir delivers a fresh, berry nose of strawberry and cherry with a zippy, mouth-watering texture and long finish. Our Pinot Noir pairs nicely with poultry, a cheese aperitif or an outdoor BBQs Santa Maria style.
Santa Barbara Collection Pinot Noir is sourced exclusively from our North Canyon vineyard, which is planted to desirable Dijon clones: 115, 667, and 777—known for producing nuanced, complex expressions of the varietal. North Canyon is located along the Santa Maria Bench, in prime Pinot Noir territory. The region's east-west orientation exposes the vineyard to the cool, maritime influence of Pacific winds. Pinots from this vineyard are notable for their elegance and expressive character.
