Product Description

The 2009 Fiddlestix Pinot is medium ruby in color with an expressive nose of Bing cherry, cranberry, blueberry, and iron. The palate is pure and layered, with black cherry, berry, briar and graphite notes backed up by lush tannin and good acidity. This is a rich wine that remains light on its feet, a beautiful combination of juicy fruit and classic early, minerally Pinot flavors. 110 cases produced Wine Style:Red Wine Varietal:Pinot Noir Varietal Composition: 100%Pinot Noir Appellation:Santa Rita Hills Barrel Aging: 16 months 50%new French Oak Bottling Date:February 2011 Alcohol %:14.7

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.
