Product Description

Our 2009 Lindsays Pinot Noir is a beautiful example of classic Pinot Noir; delicate and subtle with endlessly intriguing layers and complexities. Notes of black cherry and worn leather explode on the nose accompanied by an underlying rich brown sugar spice. Blueberry cobbler, a hint of lemon zest and freshly ground cardamom round out the palate. This is an intricate yet friendly wine and will resonate with all lovers of Pinot Noir. Full, ripe and harmonious it pairs well with lamb, turkey, salmon or pork.

Details

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Region: Santa Rita Hills

Region Description:

Commercial vineyards were literally non-existent in the region until the 1890's. In 2001 it gained its AVA recognition. The Santa Rita Hills run east to west inside the Santa Ynez Valley. The valley creates a natural channel allowing cool ocean air from the Pacific Ocean to flow through the valley. The micro climate created in the Santa Rita Hills area is well-suited for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
