2018 Pinot Noir, La Encantada
The La Encantada vineyard, originally planted by Richard Sanford in 2000, produces wines that exemplify the greatest attributes of the Sta. Rita Hills’ southwest corridor year after year. This wine owes its distinctive minerality in part to the ancient, fossilized oceanic soils of the vineyard. Aromatically, aromas of white pepper, sage, thyme, citrus peel and rosehip waft from the glass. Texturally, this medium-bodied wine is framed by silky tannins and refreshing acidity. While it is drinking beautifully now, this impeccably balanced wine will continue to develop in the bottle for several years.
