About This Wine
A hillside vineyard located just seven miles from the cool Pacific Ocean, the La Encantada Vineyard usually sets smaller berries, which contribute to great concentration in the wines. Being so far west in the Santa Rita Hills, this vineyard is very heavily influenced by the maritime breezes that blow in unobstructed in this east-west valley. This Pinot Noir shows dark bramble fruit which is backed by earthiness and baking spices. A charming wine that lives up to the name of the vineyard, the 2018 La Encantada Pinot Noir is a delicious highlight of the Santa Rita Hills.
