2021 Tyler Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 750ml
Winery Notes- Our Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is comprised of fruit from various high quality vineyard sites throughout the appellation. This bottling is intended to provide great value and represenation, while keeping focus on quality and typicity. We ferment with native yeasts in large, open-top Rousseau oak fermenters. After about five days, fermentation begins and we gently manage extraction with judicious use of both punch-downs and pump-overs. Once dry, we press the wine to tank for a brief settling before racking to french oak barrique. The wine rests in barrel for 8-9 months before racking back to stainless steel tanks prior to bottling. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. The result is a structured, yet approachable, Pinot Noir with bright acidity, red fruits and a natural savoriness.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2021 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills has a medium ruby-purple color and scents of cranberry, raspberry and blueberry with pure wafts of tea leaves and violet. The light-bodied palate is delicate, bright and chalky with a core of perfumed fruit and an ethereal, lifted finish.
