In the glass, this Sta. Rita Hills Pinot has a black olive core with dark garnet edges surrounded by a thin brick halo….
The nose is a BLAST of zesty ripe raspberries dunked in a black-cherry smoothie ————–> Another sniff pulls out a little white pepper heat that’s cleverly wrapped in sugar coated blueberries to tamper it down a bit….
A sip starts smooth as silk with black-cherries and more of the raspberries I got on the nose…. A chew and a swish brings out an acidic kick of bing cherries and orange rind before a surprising hit of peat-smoke hits my palate and I’M IN LOVE ———> This lil gem finishes with puréed black fruit that works as a seamless accent to a loooooong and attention grabbing smoky-spicy ending….
Here’s a Pinot Noir from Bonaccorsi Wine Co that’s another Sta. Rita Hills STUNNER ———-> This thing’s got some good acid but also throws some puréed black fruit and smoke into the ring that I’m diggin! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with something a that’ll put a smile on your face like Rusted Root – Send Me On My Way
