Domaine de la Côte Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills La Côte 2020

$150

Elegant and reserved in style, this lets a wave of black and red tea unfurl in front of savory-laced, gently mulled raspberry and black cherry fruit flavors. Reveals echoes of blood orange, incense and sous-bois that filter through as a pleasantly austere mineral spine provides the support for everything to play out lengthily. Best from 2023 through 2032. 374 cases made.

Summary

Grape

Pinot Noir

This popular red grape originated in Burgundy but has spread across the New World. Like its white Burgundian counterpart Chardonnay, Pinot Noir is early-budding, early-ripening and thin-skinned. The sites where it tends to thrive can experience tough growing conditions, which lead to more rigorous fruit selection and lower yields. This is one of the reasons that high-quality Pinot Noir often carries a higher price tag than other wines.
