Hitching Post Pinot Noir 2013

Member Review by StarchitectEDK:

Bright red berries and white pepper on the nose lead into a palate of strawberry, white pepper, and herbs. Fairly young and acidic at first. Mellowed out after some air. Easy drinking, light bodied, and well balanced. Let this one sit for a bit! It's still got some aging to do.

Hitching Post:
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. ... Read more
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!

Light and thin looking in the glass. Typical pinot nose. Cherries and strawberries are prominent. Nice.

Strong cherry and chocolate notes. Dry side for a Pinot. Very flavorful and would def drink again.

With roses, you either get cough syrup or something extraordinary. I'm happy to say that H-O's Pink Pinot is something extraordinary.

Winemaker's Notes - The Cork Dancer 7.2 is a different bottling than 7.1, and represents an upgrade in quality as the grapes are sourced from our finest vineyards. A blend of 75 percent Santa Maria Valley and 25 percent Sta. Rita Hills. Sixteen months aging in 50 percent new French and Hungarian oak, you will find 7.2 is balanced and focused, a more feminine expression of Santa Barbara fruit (when compared to the Highliner).
