Pali, 2018 Pinot Noir 'Huntington'
Huntington is crafted from premium Pinot Noir grapes grown on Pali Vineyard, located along the Hwy 246 corridor in Gypsy Canyon, in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. This wine, made from clones 828, Pommard, 23, 777, 2A, 115 and 667 is carefully blended to express the unique flavors associated with Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir. This wine is fermented in small lots, punched down up to three times daily during fermentation, the barrel-aged in 20% new French oak for 10 months.
Aromas of juicy blackberry, dried herbs and cured meats. On the palate, flavors of fresh strawberries and raspberries and a variety of baking spices, clove and cinnamon, along with earthy components of black tea and mushroom.
