2016 Rancho La Vina Vineyard Pinot Noir
91 Pts. Wine Enthusiast
Rancho La Vina Vineyard is nestled along the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, on California's central coast. The vineyard, which is a part of a family-owned and operated ranch, established in the 1860's, shares its home with cattle, walnuts and various fruit trees. The wines benefit from the wind coming off the Pacific Ocean, making it the ideal cool climate for growing premium Pinot Noir grapes. The wine is made exclusively from clone 115, barrel-aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak barrels and bottled in May 2018.
