2017 "Hangmen & Scribes" Pinot NoirSta. Rita Hills
This wine originates from a mountainous location that's remote, cold, and downright grumpy. Perfect for growing Pinot Noir. Proximity to the Pacific allows for warm days and cools nights.. Just what it takes to arrest sugars and bring the "hangmen" in to monitor quality. The integrated barrel notes on this wine are insane. Look for fresh cigar box followed by floral esters and muddled raspberry. Dusty cherry and a slightly tannic finish hints at even greater things to come. Drink well, the Scribe.
