Pali, 2018 Pinot Noir 'Cargasacchi Vineyard'
Cargasacchi Vineyard is located along Sweeney Canyon Road in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills in Santa Barbara County. Peter Cargasacchi meticulously farms this 16-acre Pinot Noir vineyard, where maritime influences create a long growing season, developing balanced flavor and tannins, along with a distinct minerality. This wine is made exclusively from Dijon clone 115 and was fermented in small lots and punched down by hand multiple times daily. It was barrel-aged in 50% new French oak for 18 months and bottled in June 2020.
