FROM SANTA BARBARA CALIFORNIA NOT AUSTRALIA. This is the best value Pinot Noir from California out there. The Shark always seems to know what he is doing. The wine has it all. The finished wine has floral scents and flavors of black cherry, plum and straw.

This blend has become an Australian classic. Dark Shiraz notes of berry fruit plum and spice meld with the Cabernet rich mulberry flavors and fine tannins. Attractive cedar and vanilla characters are derived from oak maturation and contribute good complexity and great length of flavor.

Winemaker's Notes:

A ruby red in color. Aromas of sweet strawberry, rose petal, and tomato vine are subtle and highlighted by mushroom nuances. The fruit forward flavors of ripe cherry and strawberry are delivered with a smooth mouthfeel and lingering silky tannins. The appellation's lengthy growing season makes Santa Barbara County a perfect place to grow balanced and concentrated pinot noir. The coastal climate is key-it is just warm enough that the fruit fully ripens; yet not too hot that vegetal undertones appear. The well-draining sandstone and limestone soils consistently produce small, richly concentrated berries. After a gentle de-stemming process, the whole berries were fermented in stainless steel open-top tanks and punched down daily. A portion of the wine was then aged in seasoned French and American oak barrels with the other portion aged in stainless steel to preserve the fresh fruit flavors and maintain a good acidity.
