2014 Santa Barbara County Duvarita Vineyard Pinot Noir

2014 Santa Barbara County
Duvarita Vineyard

Pinot Noir

Duvarita is six miles from the Pacific Ocean, making it one of the closest to the ocean in Santa Barbara County. Biodynamically grown grapes, meticulous winemaking and a combination of three Dijon clones make for a wine that captures both vintage and site.

Tasting Notes and Production Details

Alluring red fruit and underbrush fill the nose. Soft delicate red fruit and fine tannin fill out the palate.
