2018 Pinot Noir
John Sebastiano Vineyard
Sta Rita Hills, Santa Barbara
The 2018 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard is bursting at the seams with energy and intensity. A touch of whole clusters (25%) adds energy to a Pinot that impresses with its explosive power and overall tension. The bright red fruit is extremely primary today. I would cellar the 2018 for a few years to allow more aromatic nuance to develop, but that will be challenging, as it is so compelling right now.

2019 Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley, Sonoma
Incredibly compelling and fun to drink, this Pinot Noir seems to offer up something new with every sniff and taste. The aromatics are replete with violet, blueberry, huckleberry, green olives, cured meat, and pine needles. The palate delivers Darjeeling tea, red berries, integrated French oak, dark chocolate, star anise, fresh herbs, and pepper. The texture is layered and intense with a long, tingling finish. Dense and powerful but light on its feet.
