VINEYARDS

This light-to-medium bodied Pinot Noir is sourced from Lindsay’s Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. The Sta. Rita Hills AVA lies in Santa Barbara County, where the mountains closest to the Pacific coast lie perpendicular to the shore, forming valleys that funnel cool air and fog to estates well inland. A hint of Rodger’s Creek Pinot Noir from the Petaluma Gap brings us perfect balance.
