2017 Radian Vineyard Pinot Noir
Sta. Rita Hills
Radian Vineyard is the westernmost vineyard along Santa Rosa Rd, in the heart of Sta. Rita Hills. Cold nights and a constant marine influence makes this site ideal for expressive and balanced Pinot Noir. In 2017, we identified FOUR barrels that set themselves apart and we bottled our third "single-vineyard" Pinot Noir from Radian Vineyard.
Aged 15 months in French oak (15% new) with 15% stem inclusion. While she sure is showy now, expect great things as this wine matures over the next decade.
Cherry-cola, saltwater taffy, and muddled raspberry leap from the glass and are followed by subtle notes of forest floor and warm spices. Graceful yet assertive.
