2016 Pence Ranch Estate Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (Elsewhere $26) 750ml

Quick Overview

Winemaker's Notes: "Our Estate Pinot Noir represents the essence of our organically farmed vineyards with grapes sourced from every block, with multiple row orientations, sun aspects and clonal selections, all of which are planted in rich clay soils. Having these unique soils, creates a fuller and deeper impression in the mouth. Our estate wines reflect the essence of our terroir. Derived from a selection of our small blocks, these wines express the roundness derived from our rich clay soils, while also conveying the tension derived from the maritime influences that challenge our vines every day. Blending these blocks provides us the opportunity to produce wines that are immensely drinkable now, yet will also deliver great drinking for the next 5+ years. 14 months in 25% new French oak. 20% whole-cluster fermented. 592 cases."

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 93

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The excellent 2016 Pinot Noir Estate offers up a sapid bouquet of sweet spices, smoke, wild plum and rich soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied with rich tannins, a succulent core of juicy fruit, nice concentration and depth. This is a characterful, complex Pinot Noir with plenty of substance to enjoy over the next decade.

WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 92

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: This is a great and extremely fairly priced taste of what the Pence team is up to on the eastern edge of the appellation. Sweet sandalwood, red plum, mulberry, black tea, juniper and a hint of maple show on the nose. The palate combines tart black-plum skins with cherry tomato and dewy garden-herb flavors. *Editors' Choice*
