2021 PINOT NOIR

PRESQU'ILE VINEYARD

SANTA MARIA VALLEY

 

Presqu'ile Vineyard is organically farmed and located on the Solomon Hills in the Santa Maria Valley where the fog lifts late morning and the afternoon breeze blows from the Pacific. This wine is the result of traditional methods, a great vineyard and a love for Old World wines. It is a wine exemplifying poise and elegance. It showcases not only the purity of fruit that can be found in Santa Maria, but also alluring baking spice and black tea notes.

​Tasting Notes

Bright red fruit, Bing cherry, hard spice and sandalwood dominate the nose. Clove and raspberry fill out the well-balanced palate.

 

"The 2021 Pinot Noir Presqu'ile Vineyard is a rich, fruity wine with tons of upfront appeal. Juicy red cherry fruit, pomegranate, spice, new leather and dried herbs all grace this exquisite, layered Pinot Noir. The decision to move away from whole cluster in this bottling is a plus. Sweet floral and savory notes grace the long, nuanced finish." -Antonio Galloni, Vinous

This Pinot Noir is planted on a steep hillside block on marine-derived shale with high clay content, rock and cobble. Cool winds from the Pacific Ocean make for challenging conditions which results in smaller yields on this site.

2021 PINOT NOIR

DUVARITA VINEYARD

SANTA BARBARA COUNTY

 

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 create a wine that captures both vintage and site.

Tasting Notes

​Blackberry and plum, turned earth, leather and musk fill the nose. Soft delicate dark fruit and fine tannin fill out the elegant palate.

 

"The 2021 Pinot Noir Duvarita Vineyard is a wine of real depth and dimension. Dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice all race across the palate. Painfully low yields produced a Pinot of undeniable class and textural intensity. A healthy dollop of whole cluster (30%) adds complexity without dominating the balance." Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Tasting Notes

"A new wine from this range, the 2020 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict is stellar. All the richness of this site comes through loud and clear. This is by far the most exuberant of the Storm wines. Even so, it preserves tons of freshness and energy while capturing so much of what makes S&B such a compelling site. Readers who can find it should not hesitate. It is very obviously one of the wines of the vintage." Antonio Galloni, Vinous

WINES

Our wines are handcrafted using a combination of Old and New World winemaking techniques. From being present while the grapes are picked in the early morning hours, to basket pressing, to only using gravity on the red wines. Fining and filtration is only done when necessary and on white wines. We make sure our wines express the unique qualities the fruit embodies.
