Lot 268 2008 Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir was purchased in barrel and it reflects the entire program (a little less than 500 cases). Given that this wine had previously been priced in the $45-$50 per bottle range, the terrific provenance and meticulous winemaking is evident here, this is an absolutely screaming deal at $15.
A Little Earthy
For my tastes, this pinot was a bit on the Burgundy border. Not that that's a bad thing, but I'm partial to lighter pinots, and this is decidedly not that. That said, under the right conditions, this could be an excellent pairing (I'm thinking a nice NY strip).
