2018 / Pinot Noir

2018 Dierberg Pinot Noir

The grapes for this wine come exclusively from the Dierberg Drum Canyon Vineyard located near the north eastern edge of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. From this hillside vineyard we’ve observed that both the cluster and berry size are quite small due to the challenging growing environment and low fertility soils. The result is a wine of unique character with a true sense of place, the Sta. Rita Hills.

Tasting notes

Medium ruby-purple color with aromas of cherry and red berry fruit, baking spice, leather, herbs and toasted oak. The palate is dry, medium-plus bodied and fresh, showing red cherry, plum and raspberry with vanilla on entry and savory dried herbs, leather with tobacco leaf on the mid-palate. The finish is moderately long with fine, medium tannins, candied cherry notes with a subtle camphor accent.


Food pairings

Fresh and textured with bright fruit character and earthy accents, the 2018 Dierberg Pinot Noir is a great pairing with a pan-fried salmon fillet topped with sautéed shiitake mushrooms.
