Badge Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County Santa Rita Hills 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A full-throated Pinot with ripe, vivid blueberry, blackberry and mineral flavors that are rich and intense without being heavy or overly tannic. Great balance, depth and structure. Absolutely stunning.

Dark crimson which was unexpected by the nose and palate of this pinot, but it was very nice. -Tastes 9/12/09 Marche' Bacchus

Wine Tasting NotesThe 2005 BADGE Pinot Noir is comprised of two vineyards located in the Sta. Rita Hills appellation in Santa Barbara County. 60% of this vintage comes from the La Encantada vineyard (clones 667, 115, and Pommard 4) with the balance of the blend (clones 115 and 777) coming form the Gaia Vineyard: formerly Ashleys Vineyard. The wine is sleek and glossy, laden with a delectable profusion of super ripe plum, cherry, raspberry and pomegranate fruit accented with alluring vanilla, cola, pepper, sweet herb and warm spice notes. The wine spent 16 months in barrel (60% new French oak) prior to bottling in order to allow the components plenty of time to integrate.
