2016 Cargasacchi Vineyard Pinot Noir
Cargasacchi Vineyard is located at the far western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA of Santa Barbara County, CA. Peter Cargasacchi meticulously farms this 16-acre Pinot Noir vineyard, whose maritime influences create a long growing season, developing balanced flavors and tannins, along with a distinct minerality. This wine is made exclusively from Dijon clone 115 and is fermented in small lots. It was barrel-aged in 50 percent new French oak for 18 months, racked once and bottled in April 2018.
