Drew Pinot Noir Cargasacchi 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 Drew Family Pinot Noir Cargasacchi "After tasting through the lineup, I found the wines well-made and very representative of Pinot Noirs from the Santa Rita Hills appellation. They were deeply-colored, rich, and powerfully masculine wines with plentiful dark berry flavors. The aromas were full of crushed red and black fruits. All of them had plenty of fine-grain tannins." "Although Sea Smoke is the darling of the Santa Rita Hills at the moment, the Drew wines match up very favorably." - PinotFile This is a california wine

Jason Drew began his winemaking odyssey in 1980, when he helped plant his uncle’s vineyard in the Stag’s Leap District of Napa Valley. Jason then pursued an education based on the land – in Agricultural Ecology, Viticulture and Enology. A passion and philosophy grew during the early years, when Jason managed world-class vineyards in Northern California. Discussions that had germinated years earlier when Jason and Molly first dreamt of having their own winery began to resurface. In 2000, they formed Drew while Jason was Associate Winemaker at Babcock Vineyards and Winery in Santa Barbara’s Santa Rita Hills area. In 2003, Drew was on its own. 2004 was a milestone year, when Jason and Molly purchased property on a ridgetop overlooking Anderson Valley to the east and the Pacific Ocean 3 miles to the west. Jason's instinct was clear that this property has the potential for Pinot Noir greatness! They spent the following year designing and building their boutique winery and moved in for the 2005 harvest. Research is currently under way for Drew's first estate vineyard. Read less
