Inception Pinot Noir
Santa Barbara 2009

This is a classic example of the balance and richness that Santa Barbara Pinot Noir can achieve. Sourced from 3 historic and acclaimed cool climate vineyards that benefit from a long growing season and cooling maritime influence - Bien Nacido Vineyard, Los Alamos, and Cottonwood Canyon Vineyard are all examples of meticulous farming and that great wine begins in the vineyard.

The Inception Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir exemplifies intoxicating berry fruit and spice characteristics with an earthy mineral core. This Pinot is a full-bodied expression, which offers notes of dark cherry, strawberry, raspberry, summer truffle, cola, and spearmint on the nose. The palate continues with flavors of fresh herbs, wet minerals, fresh berries, 5 spice, and wild mushrooms framed with bright acidity and an earthy and smoky finish. The long growing season adds to the wines freshness, silky tannins and satin texture. The 2009 pinot noir truly exemplifies the freshness of Santa Barbara fruit with the complexity and elegance reminiscent of great red burgundy.

Grapes for this wine were picked in October 2009 and destemmed into small open top fermenters with punch downs occurring twice a day. After a 3 day cold soak, and the juice was inoculated with RC212 yeast and fermentation occurred at 85F for two weeks.

The wine was pressed off at dryness and racked to 60 gallon French Oak barrels where it was aged for 12 months and bottled in November 2010
