94 Pts. Wine Enthusiast
The Huber Estate was established in 1986, and the first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines were planted in 1987, making this one of the oldest vineyards in Sta. Rita Hills. Proprietors Norm and Traudi Huber are passionate and meticulous caretakers of their vineyard and are directly involved in all aspect of vineyard management. Located in the heart of Sta. Rita Hills, the vineyard benefits from the appellation's cool climate, ocean breezes, coastal fog, and incredible soils. This Pinot Noir is fermented in small lots, barrel-aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak and was bottled in April 2018.
