THE PARING 2010 PINOT NOIR SANTA RITA HILLS 750mL

This wine is made using grapes from the famed Santa Rita Hills area of Santa Barbara County-- most of the vines are 39 years old, making them some of the oldest in the area! There’s a strong statement from the old vines in this wine. First, all things black: black plum, black cherry, black pepper, black olive and black tea. Then, all things from the earth: wet soil, mushroom, leaf underbrush, pine needles and beet root, smoked meat, campfire notes and a minty freshness. The wine has a complex and ever-changing nose that usually shows its brooding side, occasionally flirts with a floral aspect but always begs to be paired with food. Bright red cherry and dark plum intertwine on the attack with strong elements of spice and smoke. From there the earth-driven notes add a touch of dusty tannin that slowly resolves into a fruit-laden finish. A fascinating ride through the dark side of pinot noir courtesy of the deep-rooted and wise, old vines.
