2016 Pali Vineyard Estate Reserve Pinot Noir
95 Pts. Wine Enthusiast
This is the first release of our "Estate Reserve" Pinot Noir crafted from the best barrels and the best blocks on our estate vineyard, located on the northwestern side of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA in Santa Barbara County. This year's reserve wine is made from clones 777, 23, and 2A, and only six barrels were selected to produce a total of 150 cases of this wine. It was harvested and fermented in small lots, barrel-aged for 18 months in 100% new French Oak, and then bottled in July 2018.
