2017 Rancho La Vina Vineyard Pinot Noir
Rancho La Vina Vineyard is nestled along the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. The Vineyard is a part of a family-owned and operated ranch established in the 1860s and 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. Crafted from clones 115 and 777, hand-harvested, fermented in small lots and punched down by hand up to three times daily. Barrel-aged for 18 months using 50% new French oak barrels. Bottled May 2019.
