2016 Pinot Noir Duvarita Vineyard
This wine reflects Duvarita's terroir and has an elegant, classic pinot quality. This cool, sandy, hillside vineyard is located just west of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA and is certified organic and Biodynamic®. The vines are planted close together and low to the ground to protect them from the ocean breezes and provide heat from the soil. The sandy soils provide light reflection and are well drained.
This 2016 Pinot offers an intense red berry spice, potpourri, and notes of musky herbs and cracked black pepper on the nose. You will enjoy its rich, savory herbs, dark red cherries, and spices on your palate which displays its complexity. It finishes with a beautiful, juicy femininity, with bright floral notes and a hint of black pepper.
