Radian Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills. This is, as the name states made by Amy and Peter, her a master of wine, and he a winemaker of 15 years in Santa Barbara County. The nose shows raspberry, cranberry, cherry, light minerality and a more forward fruit tone. The palate is moderate with supple black fruits and a hint of red cherry and light barrel spice. D&M Tasting Notes
The grapes come from the organically farmed Radian Vineyard, located at the western edge of Santa Rita Hills along Santa Rosa Road, in a valley directly open to the Pacific Ocean. The consistently cool and sunny climate is ideal for growing excellent Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This wine is made from a south facing slope planted to clone 115 and a west facing slope planted to clone 667.
The grapes were partially de-stemmed with 25% whole clusters left intact. Fermentation took place with native yeasts and lasted a total of 16 days. The wine was aged in two and three year old French oak barrels for 14 months before bottling without filtration.
Spicy and earthy aromas of blackberry and raspberry give way to bright acidity on the palate and round sweetness of fruit. This is a classic example of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir, both complex and refreshing. 13% alcohol. Vegan. 500 cases produced.
