2019 / Pinot Noir

2019 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

Bright, medium ruby/purple with complex aromas of ripe cherry, blackcurrant, raspberry, baking spice, autumn leaf, and camphor accents. On the palate it’s dry with a mix of ripe red and black fruit on the entry complemented by vanilla and cinnamon spice and a touch of oak and dried tobacco leaf with moderate tannins and balancing acidity through the mid-palate. The finish is moderate to long and clean with lingering fruit, spice, and subtle camphor notes.


Food pairings

The 2019 Dierberg Pinot noir is an attractive mix of fruit, spice, earth, and textures that are perfectly balanced and make it a versatile food pairing wine. It’s great with game like duck or venison with a red wine and herb pan sauce, or with the traditional Italian stuffed pork roast, Porchetta.
