Young and fresh, the wine displays dark berry fruit and spice, with just a touch of new oak. A well structured and finely balanced wine that is approachable and very food friendly.
Wine Maker Notes
"HOMETOWN" is our early bottling of Santa Barbara Pinot Noir that showcases the delicious fruit of young Pinot, and the balance and seduction of the 2008 vintage. This three valley blend replaces the Cork Dancer 7.1, with grapes sourced from the same vineyards near Los Alamos, Santa Maria, and Sta. Rita Hills. We are excited with our first Pinot Noir that we made at the ultra-modern Terravant Wine Company in Buellton.
Individual lots were aged in mostly neutral French and Hungarian oak.
