The 2009 is earthy with some cheery flavors. Light tannins & high acidity. Light bodied... Would be good with fish.

Brambly, dirty, barnyard of a nose. Soft and smooth with rich fruit in the mouth. Finish offers prickly acidity and raspberries.

Immediately tart and bright; a youthful, vibrant glass. Paired brilliantly with hummus.

We had this with friends and we liked it. Good color and esay to enjoy. A friend brough it over now we need to find it again to try again. The spelling on the page is wrong. It should Santa Barbara I think.

This wine is just easy to drink. Whether with fresh grilled salmon or left-over roast chicken or just in a glass by itself, the pretty plum and spring strawberry flavors of ABC SB Pinot are simply delicious.

This wine is just easy to drink. Whether with fresh grilled salmon or left-over roast chicken or just in a glass by itself, the pretty plum and spring strawberry flavors of ABC SB Pinot are simply delicious. There is nothing pretentious here, just well balanced, nicely textured, brightly fruity wine that seems to go with everything. - Winery

Bright red. Fresh red berries and spices on the nose. Firm, slightly hard-edged redcurrant and cherry flavors gain flesh with air and pick up a subtle floral quality. Nicely brisk if a tad firm, with good finishing clarity and bite.

Vibrant and heady, this wine's full-throttle flavors of juicy red fruit and red apple skin have plenty of complex spice. It's not powerfully structured, but it is mouthwatering, the kind of bottle that two people can open and easily finish. For roast quail.

If you want exceptional California Pinot Noir for your money – look no further. This well-balanced Pinot has rich, red-raspberry fruit with smoky notes. This delicious wine is a natural choice with food. By hand-selecting the grapes from the best fruit Santa Barbara has to offer and through careful bottling, this winemaker does his job.
