Description

BEST IN CLASS Pinot Noir ($35.00-$39.99) 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

Wine:
"This Unbridled Pinot Noir is spicy and sexy with notes of white pepper, tobacco, and strawberry overtones. It is extremely balanced with a tremendous entry, yummy mid-pallet [sic] and luxurious finish."

"Typically sourced from small vineyard parcels in the southern part of Santa Barbara County, Unbridled Pinot Noir shows aromas of cherry, cinnamon, and garden herbs with rich flavors of strawberry and seasoned French oak." - Winery

Vineyard:
"The fruit for our Pinot Noir comes from two vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley in Santa Barbara County. Garey Vineyard, located on the western end of the Santa Maria Valley, makes up 85% of the blend. The remaining 15% of the fruit comes to us from a newly discovered gem in the furthest corner of the Santa Maria Valley named Rancho Sisquoc Vineyard. Both of these vineyards together make up the depth, richness, and elegance we look for in this Unbridled reserve wine." - Winery

Winemaking:
"The grapes were received at the winery where they were de-stemmed and fermented in small, open-topped tanks with the must punched down or pumped over two times per day. Each lot spent at least 10 days on the skins before the wine was pressed, then racked into barrels for its secondary malolactic fermentation and 14 months of maturation. Comprised of 35% new oak, we select only the finest French oak barrels to season this delicious wine." - Winery

Food Pairing Notes:
"Excellent pairing for this wine includes seared duck breast, smoked salmon, and a beet and hazelnut salad with grilled ricotta. It is delicious now and will mature nicely over the next five years." - Winery
