2018 Sta. Rita Hills La Encantada Vineyard Pinot Noir
2018 Pinot Noir
"The 2018 Pinot Noir La Encantada Vineyard is the most exuberant of these Pinots from Siduri. An explosion of sweet red berry fruit, blood orange, incense and spice gives the Encantada striking exoticism. Silky tannins wrap around the pliant, creamy finish. The 2018 is such an enticing, alluring Pinot."
About This Wine
Located seven miles from the Pacific Ocean, the La Encantada Vineyard sits at about 450 feet of elevation and is planted to some of the most sought-after Pinot Noir Grapes in the appellation. The fruit benefits from a long hang time on the vine, resulting in distinct, complex characters, as well as a true varietal expression. This incredible site provides fruit of unquestionable quality.
The aromatics are divine with red berries and plum at the forefront. A quick swirl or two and smoked salt and fragrant dried herbs intermingle their savory qualities. The palate offers a mouthwatering savoriness with a silky texture. This is balanced by the fresh red cherry and cranberry melded with notes of baking spices.
