Tasting Notes

Rita’s Crown Pinot Noir has a nougaty, chalky mineral character driven by terroir. The palate features concentrated berry coulis and five-spice. This wine is lively and dynamic with subtle oak notes and a lengthy structured finish full of powerful red fruit.

Wine Facts

The 2015 growing season in Anderson Valley was characterized by early bud break and a quick harvest. Early spring was unusually warm, however temperatures dropped in May causing ripening to slow, this allowed for flavor development and higher acidity. Yields were lower but the small berries and shatter that characterized this vintage resulted in impressive quality in the bottle.

Appellation Sta. Rita Hills
Barrel Aging 10 Months in 50% New French OAk
