Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir 2018
Region: Santa Barbara, California
The Pinot Noir crop ripened slowly and evenly, giving the resulting wine a fruit driven aroma followed by complex flavors of green tea, strawberry, cranberry, clove, and unsweetened dark chocolate. This Pinot reminds us of our 2005 Santa Barbara County. Both wines have a freshness that should last for years, but with a real Pinot Noir backbone that will slowly develop for at least another 10 years.
