Alma Rosa Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2014
|Appellation||Sta. Rita Hills|
Wine EnthusiastTart cherry, baking spice and dried chaparral show on the nose of this appellation blend from pioneering vintner Richard Sanford and Nick de Luca, making for a soft and easy entry. It's light and refreshing on the palate, with a bit of tannic depth, offering dried cranberry, juniper and garrigue-inflected flavors. Lively and vibrant with herbal depth.
Wine SpectatorMedium-bodied, with some ripe notes to the roasted plum and dried cherry flavors. The taut finish has forest floor accents. Drink now. 662 cases made
