2016 / Pinot Noir

2016 La Encantada Pinot Noir

La Encantada, “The Enchanted,” was one of the early certified organic vineyards in Santa Barbara County. Planted by Richard Sanford in 2001, it is located about seven miles from the Pacific in the cool-climate Sta. Rita Hills AVA, a rare east/west facing valley that is directly open to the fog and cold marine winds from the Pacific. The vineyard is located on a mostly north-facing ridge, which gives the Pinot fruit a fresh, cool-climate character. The region’s characteristic long growing season gives ample maturity and depth, producing a wine of unique character and balance with a true sense of place.

TASTING NOTES

Aromatic with fresh red fruit, figs, and subtle spring roses. On the palate, dark cherry and cranberry with red beets, barrel spice, herbal tea and a hint of root beer, finishing with long silky tannins, mineral texture and vibrant acidity. Drinking well now with the potential to cellar a decade, possibly more.


FOOD PAIRINGS

A complex, fresh mix of red and dark fruit, sweet spice with savory elements, the 2016 La Encantada Pinot Noir pairs nicely with a variety of dishes from savory cranberry & brie tartlets to a cedar plank salmon.
