Sleek and focused, with a lovely sanguine note pulling you in from the start, with light savory, mineral, red tea and red currant coulis accents keeping you coming back for more. Gains range on the finish from a light dusting of sandalwood and potpourri. Lovely. Drink now through 2030. 3,300 cases made.

Light pomegranate aromas are enlivened by dank herbs and cracked pepper on the nose of this bottling. The palate lands with a tart, brisk cranberry, pomegranate and raspberry combination, as underlying herbs add depth.

The 2020 Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley) is a very pretty, appellation-level wine. Crushed red berry fruit, mint, spice and dried herbs are nicely lifted. There's lovely aromatic presence, but the wine's balance feels a bit fragile and a touch ethereal. I would prefer to drink this over the near and medium term.

Moving to the reds, the 2020 Pinot Noir is a decent introduction to the wines of this estate and has a spicy, complex, earthy style as well as medium-bodied richness and depth. It's a juicy, balanced effort that will drink well for 3-4 years. This was destemmed and spent 10 months in neutral barrels.
