Located in the Santa Rita Hills AVA of Santa Barbara County, the stunning hillsides of Lindsay’s Vineyard features vines that climb from 500 to 1,000 feet above sea level. The soils are marine-based and the weather is consistently cool thanks to moist ocean breezes that sweep the property daily. The vineyard is farmed with the painstaking care and attention usually associated with much smaller properties. In fact, Lindsay’s Vineyard was originally conceived as a series of individual micro-vineyards delineated by soil, exposure, elevation, grade, rootstock and clone.
This 2013 is dark and rich with fresh boysenberry and raspberry jam on the nose. The palate features tart red plum with hints of black peppercorn, hibiscus tea, straw and candied raspberries. This is a great expression of a Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. The finish is luscious and leaves one craving more.
2013 is a perfect wine for pairing with pepper rubbed leg of lamb and fresh beet salad with goat cheese. Or this is the perfect accompaniment for pulled pork sliders or chicken coq au vin.
