Neighboring vintner Bryan Babcock of Babcock Winery traded us four tons of his 2016 Pinot Noir grapes, resulting in a one-time production of this wine. He provided us with three different clones: 115, 777, and 2A (aka Waddensville). Clones 115 and 777 hail from a special section of the Babcock Vineyard that Bryan has named "Ocean's Ghost", and the wines produced from this section bear this name. The clones were harvested and fermented separately in very small lots, aged in 50% new French oak for 18 months, and then bottled in May 2018.
"Huntington" is crafted from premium Pinot Noir grapes sourced from Riverbench Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley AVA and from our Pali Estate Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. This wine is carefully blended to express the unique flavors associated with Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir. True to the region, "Huntington's flavors consist of soft red fruits, particularly strawberries and raspberries and a variety of baking spices, clove, and cinnamon, along with such earthy components as black tea and mushrooms. This wine is fermented in small lots, barrel-aged in 20% new French oak for 15 months and then bottled in December 2018.
"Riviera" is crafted from Pinot Noir grapes sourced from two vineyards in the Sonoma Coast AVA: Pali's vineyard in the south-eastern corner of the AVA, and a small, family-owned vineyard in the Russian River Valley AVA (a sub-AVA within Sonoma Coast). This wine is fermented in small lots, punched-down up to three times daily during fermentation, then barrel-aged in 30% new French oak for eight months. Bottled in May 2018.
"Bluffs" is crafted from premium Pinot Noir grapes sourced from several notable vineyards in the Russian River Valley AVA and carefully blended to express the unique flavors associated with this appellation. Pali's "Bluffs" is fermented in small lots, barrel-aged for eight months and bottled in April 2018.
"Alphabets" is crafted from 100% Pinot Noir grapes sourced from Oregon's Willamette Valley AVA. This wine is carefully blended to express the unique flavors associated with the Willamette Valley appellation. "Alphabets" is fermented in small lots and barrel-aged for 10 months in 30% new French oak. Bottled in 2018.
"Summit" is made from premium grapes grown on our Pali Estate Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. This wine is hand-crafted, using small-lot fermentations and then aged in 30% new French oak for 15 months and bottled in December 2018. "Summit" is carefully blended to create a distinguished Pinot Noir that is complex in character yet approachable upon release.
The nose offers up sweet red fruits such as fresh raspberries, cherries and baked plums, all mingling with notes of cola, cinnamon, black pepper, and toasted oak. On the palate, black cherries and baking spices swirl with mushrooms and clove. Rich and coating mouthfeel with round tannins and fresh acidity on the finish.
Planted in 2012, our 50-acre vineyard is located in Gypsy Canyon along the Hwy 246 corridor and sits on a gentle, Southeast-facing slope with mostly sandy soils. Extremely low yields from this harvest afforded us limited, but high-quality fruit to craft this wine. Made from Clones 17 and 37, this wine was barrel-fermented and barrel-aged in a combination of new and neutral French oak for 14 months and bottled in January 2018.
Established in 1986, Huber Vineyard is one of the oldest vineyards in Sta. Rita Hills appellation. Proprietors Norm and Troudl Huber planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in 1987 and have remained passionate and meticulous caretakers of their vineyard. Located in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills, the vineyard benefits from the appellation's cool climate, ocean breezes, coastal fog, and incredible soils. This Chardonnay is fermented in small lots, barrel-aged for 16 months in 50% new French oak and bottled in January 2018
Light golden straw color suggests a lighter style of Chardonnay. The nose shows fresh flavors of lemons and nectarines accented with hints of vanilla, dried herbs, toasty oak and a touch of sea salt. The palate is bright and fresh with generous, juicy acidity supporting flavors of fresh peaches, lemon peel, and bananas that dance on the tongue with vibrant minerality.
