Hitching Post Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County Highliner 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: The Hitching Post team of Frank Ostini and Gray Hartley hit a home run on this Highliner, with a nose that features fried shiitake mushrooms, violet and sizzling balsamic vinegar. It boasts an elegant mouthfeel, with very round and widely expressive fruit, characterized by orange peel, olallieberry and more violet. 1,200 cases produced. (Oct 2014)

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.

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!

Brilliant ruby-red. Red berry liqueur, cherry and floral aromas are energized by a lively mineral flourish. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering spicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Supple tannins build slowly and gain strength with air, adding shape to the long, red fruit-dominated finish. Extremely sexy and approachable now but this bottling also has a track record for aging well.
