2014 The Hilt Pinot Noir Vanguard Santa Rita Hills
"The Hilt wines are inspired by a single place:
Rancho Salsipuedes in the Sta. Rita Hills
AVA and its distinctive vineyards, Bentrock,
Radian and Puerta del Mar.
Blocks on the long rolling hills, slightly more protected from the wind give us an opulent and richly-textured style of wine. Wine made from grapes grown on these sites take a larger portion of new French oak, and in the end, are more supple and soft. These are the blocks used to craft The Vanguard." -Winery
