Summerland…And The Pinot’s Easy

Bright clear ruby with purple edges, light pinkish garnet under light.  Nutty and full with briar, lavender and spicy conifer wood smoke with a gamy Cynar brittleness.  Warm hay and cherry jelly.

In the mouth, a beautiful bright fruit-acid-dark fruit-tannin scenario of lovely young Pinot.  Instant crisp acidity follows the initial blast of fruit which deepens but thins a bit over the middle as smoky tar and ample tannins take over.  This is a lovely little pinot–and not expensive.  In half-bottle.

2013 SUMMERLAND Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County California 14.1
