Sweet notes of underbrush, lightly toasty spices and wild cherry greets the nose with a soft floral top note. This is lovely on entry with small yet ever so slightly austere tannins offering a nice touch of bite on entry then falling back into the rich blanket of spicy, dark cherry and black raspberry toned fruit on the palate. The wine is medium to medium full bodied but the acidity keeps it light on its feet. The back end is lightly spicy with a rich dark soil tone under a soft layer of baking spice. The acid helps to drive the finish and freshens up the red fruited finale. 91pts

Absolutely fantastic. This is a pinot with a backbone. Nose of black cherry and oak. Flavor follows a similar formula with balanced acidity and a pronounced, but appropriate amount of tannin leading to a pleasant and well structured wine.

The 2008 Lincourt Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is a blended wine from our meticulously maintained, estate vineyards within the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. This fruit was hand-harvested and sorted in the vineyard prior to arrival at the winery. The clusters were then carefully destemmed to keep the berries intact. Jack stems were removed before the fruit was transferred to small, stainless steel, open-top fermenters. The must (juice and skins) underwent a cold-soak for four days prior to inoculation with cultured yeast and was then gently punched down for 14-24 days. After primary (alcoholic) fermentation was complete, the new wine was drained and the skins were gently pressed. These two fractions were then settled separately and introduced to barrels
