Today’s offering is sourced from one of the greatest Pinot Noir vineyards on the Central Coast – and we only have nine barrels. Lot 281 2009 Santa Maria Pinot Noir is a meticulously hand-crafted wine, aged in 50% new French oak barrels, hailing from the best blocks of this legendary vineyard. Originally selling under another brand for $45-50, this wine is an incredible expression of Pinot Noir, combining power and grace from phenomenal 2009 vintage.
This wine starts with riotous aromatics and soulful texture. Blueberry, licorice and lavender are carried with pure red fruit flavors and silken tannins. Simply Stunning.
Folks, let me be direct here. This is the best Pinot Noir we have ever bottled, from a legendary vineyard in an incredible vintage. To boot, we purchased it for what now looks to be a song. If you have the remotest interest in what Pinot Noir lovers go gaga for, trust me, buy this wine by the case. Compare at $45-50/bottle.
