Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir Santa Maria County la Bauge au Dessus Bien Nacido Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"All three of the Pinot Noirs were outstanding, and have classic, slightly Burgundian profiles, with notable structure and bright acidity. Lastly, the 2010 Pinot Noir La Bauge Audessus is another outstanding Pinot Noir from this estate. Aged 18 months in 50% new oak, it offers crisp red berries, green herbs and sappy flowers in its medium-bodied, juicy, yet nicely structured profile." -Wine Advocate (90 Points)

Full and rich with flavors of plums and warm spice, this Pinot is a crowd pleaser. The fruit is all Dijon clones from Block Two of the famed Bien Nacido Vineyard. This is classic Santa Barbara Pinot with a price/quality ratio thats truly hard to beat. - Winery
