The Winery Pietra Santa and its History Pietra Santa is a family-run estate producing artisanal wines and olive oils in California’s Central Coast. The site was planted to winegrapes in the 1850s by Frenchman Theophile Vache who chose the location because of the maritime climate and unique soils. Pietra Santa is 25 miles from Monterey Bay and benefits from cool coastal breezes that allow for a long growing season. The estate’s location on the San Andreas Fault creates soils rich with granite and limestone that naturally lower yields and add distinctive flavors to the wines. The winery was named PIETRA SANTA, Italian for SACRED STONE, in honor of these exceptional soils. In 2005, the property was purchased by the Blackburns, a family dedicated to preserving and building upon this magnificent winemaking history. Read less

Red fruits on the nose, with a huge jammy, flabby big flavor of raspberry, cherry cola, and a bit of medicine and a hint of spice on the finish.

Nice deep woody berry flavor, a little bit tart, fairly alcoholic. There's some grassiness and sawdust as well.

Dark grainy fruit on the nose. Bright, leathery and spicy. Love this.

For the price its a great wine - great fruity, complex nose. Pretty impressive fruit as well. Its simple and the tannins are rough, but for the price this is a great wine.
