Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir S 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend from 6 vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley and Los Alamos Valley. There is also 15% Mondeuse from Bien Nacido blended into this vintage. The 2011 Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir is berries, and more berries. Strawberry and raspberry aromas are mixed with anise and clove. This wine has nuance, elegance and intensity. The possible food pairings are almost endless. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 88 points by International Wine Cellar.
