Hitching Post Highline Vineyard Pinot Noir/Petite Sirah/Other 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Bright red. Strawberry, raspberry and Asian spices on the nose, with hints of pungent herbs and anise adding complexity. Juicy, alluringly sweet red fruit compote flavors are braced by zesty minerals and gain depth with aeration. A silky, open-knit pinot that offers immediate appeal but will repay at least another few years of patience. I've been pleasantly surprised by the ageworthiness of the Hitching Post wines in recent years. (Nov/Dec 2009)

The Buellton Hitching Post was established in 1986, but our roots started at the Casmalia Hitching Post in 1952. It was there that Frank & Natalie Ostini brought "Santa Maria Style BBQ" to its peak of perfection and where children Bill, Bob, Terri & Annette continue to this day. Here at the Hitching Post II in Buellton, we honor that tradition and also embrace the contemporary cooking styles. By combining the old and the new, we have created an exciting cuisine that is uniquely our own. Along with our outstanding steaks, ribs and chicken, we also serve items such as smoked duck breast, ostrich, home-made soups and outstanding pastries; along with what the Los Angeles Times has called the "best" French Fries in Southern California!
