Hitching Post Pinot Noir Hometown 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

87 points Wine Spectator: Starts out juicy, with plum and cherry notes that are fresh and lively, firming midpalate and ending with a drying herb aftertaste. Drink now through 2015. (10/15/11) Gray Hartley and Frank Ostini have been making Pinot Noir since 1979 from maritime cooled vineyards near the coast of central California. From humble beginnings to high tech, they continue to make traditional wines of balance and finesse that emphasize deep fruit, spice, and earthiness.

The Buellton Hitching Post was established in 1986, but our roots started at the Casmalia Hitching Post in 1952. It was there that Frank & Natalie Ostini brought "Santa Maria Style BBQ" to its peak of perfection and where children Bill, Bob, Terri & Annette continue to this day. Here at the Hitching Post II in Buellton, we honor that tradition and also embrace the contemporary cooking styles. By combining the old and the new, we have created an exciting cuisine that is uniquely our own. Along with our outstanding steaks, ribs and chicken, we also serve items such as smoked duck breast, ostrich, home-made soups and outstanding pastries; along with what the Los Angeles Times has called the "best" French Fries in Southern California!

Fresh and exciting style Pinot Noir. Bright cherry aromas with just a hint of clove spice; medium bodied, ripe berry flavors that linger throughout the glass.
