Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2019

Very nice with a quick decant. Fruit is very Sta. Rita Hills but shifts into mineral and saline elements. Amazing quality from such new vines. 2019s I’ve had from this coastal area of Sta Rita Hills are all excellent. (Chanin, Tyler, Sanford) — a year ago

I’ve been meaning to try this producer for some time now. I’ve heard & read good things about their work. So when I saw this on “Last Bottle” for $35, I picked a few up. It didn’t disappoint.

The one thing about the Santa Rita Hills region that I struggle with is a number of their Pinot Noirs, for me, are over extracted. That is not the case here.

The fruits were generally mid red. Some blackberries, strawberries, dark cherries, cherries, nice hues of blueberries, pomegranate & cranberries. Gentle wood use, softly layered baking spices, excellent acidity & nicely polished even finish.

Drinks well now but, will hold my other two bottles 2-3 years for further integration & even something a little better.

Almost got this. Hesitated for your same overextracted comment. This one sounds good.
