2016 Reserve Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills

Our Bridlewood Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir opens with a complex nose that is at once spicy and floral. Hints of rhubarb and bay leaf blend with dark cherry cola flavors and earthy notes for a Pinot that is distinctly Santa Rita. The finish is long and intense with a slight nuance of vanilla from oak aging.

Wine Tips:

Located in the western part of the Santa Ynez Valley, the Sta. Rita Hills AVA is an ideal cool-climate growing region in the Central Coast. The Sta. Rita Hills AVA has such a unique mesoclimate because of its formation that began nearly 20 million years ago when tectonic plate movements pushed mountains out of the ocean and led to the east-west valley it is today.
