About

92

"The appellation 2016 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills from Walt comes from some great sites in the region (Bentrock, Radian, Fiddlestix and Clos Pepe) and spent 10 months in 45% new French oak. It has a ripe, powerful bouquet of toasty oak, blackberries, scorched earth, and graphite. Deep, rich, and concentrated, I love its depth of fruit and it's an undeniably California Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 4-5 years."

91 Wine Spectator

"There's lots of rooibos tea notes to this toothsome red, which offers a well-honed structure to support the dried berry and cherry tart flavors. Rich and savory on the finish..."

Product Description:

"Powerful aromas of ripe cherry coulis, white pepper, and beautiful earthiness abound. An incredibly dense and fruit forward palate is layered with flavors of red berry compote, cardamom, and mineral-laced acidity." - Winery
