A fine, dry Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County, where the fog rolls inland, then back to sea, along the river valleys. Fresh and juicy with tangy black cherry and spicy earth notes; smooth and lush, savory and long with nice weight and texture.
Wine color: Red
Deep garnet purple color visually shows the intensity of this wine. Aromas of wild black raspberries, rose petals, seafloor and spice. The wine is medium-bodied, showing ripe raspberry and juicy dark cherry fruit flavors with an earthy seafloor minerality. With a velvety mouthfeel, this wine is rich with just enough tannin (from the whole cluster fermentation) to give it a nice backbone, lending support to the fleshy, earthy dark fruit.
Tasting Notes: Its deep red-garnet color presages the character-depth of this wine. Aromas of wild raspberries, rose petals, and bramble, with a sense of sea-floor minerality. This Pinot Noir is medium-bodied and offers tart red-raspberry and juicy red cherry fruit flavors. And there's that sea-floor minerality again, adding an earthy complexity. The gentle waves of flavor are smooth in the mouth. The wine is rich, with just enough tannin from the whole-cluster fermentation element to give it a nice backbone to support the fleshy-fruit and earthy flavors.
Inconceivable should, perhaps, be called “Conceived At Last!” These are wines produced and bottled by and for Middleton Family Wines. We imagined them, then considered our grape sourcing and winemaking, and declared them INCONCEIVABLE … and set about finding ways to make them anyway.
Inconceivable wines encourage discovery, each labeled with a map indicating physical landmarks, each with aromas and flavors offering sensory landmarks, to guide the curious wine lover.
