This 2011 Sta. Rita Hills Lindsay’s Pinot Noir is a wonderful reflection of this cooler vintage. Mouthwatering aromas and flavors of floral, black fruits and spicy pepper envelop this wine. It has the intensity one would expect from low yields and the fine structure that comes from a cool climate. The finish is long and bright with a decent amount of acidity and soft tannins.

Wine Profile
Production Notes
Lindsay’s Vineyard is located in the Sta. Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County. Climbing from 500 to 1,000 feet above sea level, this hilly site is treated as a series of individual micro-vineyards delineated by soil, exposure, elevation, grade, rootstock and clones. The well-draining soils and cool maritime climate make this a perfect spot for Pinot Noir. Produced by guest winemaker Leslie Renaud of Foley Estate, this Pinot shows the pure fruit and vibrancy characteristic of its cool climate origins. The fruit was hand-picked and hand-sorted in the vineyard in the cool morning hours to preserve the aromatics. The clusters were then de-stemmed with no crushing. The must was cold-soaked in open-top fermenters for four days and then allowed to ferment with native yeast. The wine was aged in 100% new French oak barrels for 19 months.
