Sea Smoke Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Ten 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Brooding and intense wine. The aromas begin with notes of noble fir, ganache, dusty blueberry and blackberry cobbler. Firm, mature tannins - evidence of Ten's ageability - are followed by a long, velvety finish.

For years, vintners have coveted a stretch of land in the western end of Santa Barbara's Santa Rita Hills AVA known to have the perfect microclimate, soils, and exposure to grow world-class Pinot Noir. In 1999, fulfilling a long-held dream of owner Bob Davids, this sought-after stretch of land became Sea Smoke Vineyard. At Sea Smoke, we produce Pinot Noir grown exclusively on the south-facing hillsides of our estate vineyards. On summer evenings, the Santa Ynez River canyon funnels a cool maritime fog layer (sea "smoke") across our hillsides, slowing the ripening process and providing the extended maturation period essential to the development of top-quality Pinot Noir. Our shallow clay soils are planted to French clones on vigor-reducing rootstocks, resulting in fewer grape clusters of intense flavor, and our artisinal approach to winemaking results in wines that are a reflection of the unique land on which they are grown. We believe that Sea Smoke's rare geography and commitment to quality have produced wines of exceptional complexity and grace. We hope that you agree and welcome your comments. Read less

Bountiful aroma engulfs the senses with ripe cherry. Definitely with years of aging this wine will evolve into a beautiful libation for the ages. A bright cherry zing on the back end provides and intensely desired second taste. Celebrating our new SUV purchase at Fratello Ristorante.

One of California's Cult Pinot Noirs, Sea Smoke Ten Vineyard is located in the Santa Rita Hills Appellation and is packed full of ripe cherry and raspberry fruit character, with layered complexity, full body and a lingering finish.
