I tasted four Pinot Noirs from 2014, all of them stunning. From Santa Rita Hills, the 2014 Pinot Noir Santa Rita, is made from Dijon clones 115 and 828. This is a beauty, with plenty of spice box, exotic hints of sassafras and cola interwoven with black cherry, blackcurrant fruit, loamy soil undertones and light to moderate tannin. The wine is deep, full-bodied, spicy and sexy. Drink it over the next 7-10 years.
