Winemaker Jason Drew does not make a single vineyard Pinot Noir from any one of thevineyards involved in this three-way vineyard blend [Fiddlestix Vineyard (39%), Clos Pepe Vineyard (32%), Arita Hills Vineyard (29%)], which makes it all the more interesting. Infact, very few blends are found in the Sta. Rita Hills because most winemakers want to showcasethe terroir of their individual vineyard. Drew, on the other hand, imagined what these three single vineyardsmight taste like if layered on top of each other. The two schools of thought here are either you’veblended away the individuality and nuance of each vineyard <i>OR</i> you’ve created somethingunique where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.Perhaps the latter applies in this case. This wine is dark but not fiercely so, while thenose is lighter and more playful that you might expect from Sta. Rita Hills Pinot, with aromaticsof cherries, dark berries and Christmas fruit cake (and that’s a good thing!). Also, an incrediblelightness of being, floral component is present, which lifts it even further out of the ordinary. Inthe mouth, the flavors are both plentiful and immediately accessible with blackberries,boysenberries and cherries coming together in a soft, well rounded mouth feel kind of way, withbrown, burnished spices and leather trailing in the background. An intriguing wine, one that maywell not be made again, which is full of complexity with a great breadth of flavors that linger onthe long, languorous finish.
