Drizzle Barrel Pinot Noir

Drizzle Barrel Pinot Noir

To “Drizzle,” we drain a newly fermented tank of Pinot Noir. The tank is put on a stand and the lower door is slightly opened. Wine from the grape skins is allowed to “drizzle” into a brand-new barrel, which results in a ripe, full-flavored wine.

Vineyard Notes

The Santa Maria Valley – of Santa Barbara County – is one of California’s coolest AVAs, with one of the longest growing seasons in the world. The region is defined by its well-drained, lean soils and the unique east/west transverse mountain ranges that act as a funnel for morning fog and cold afternoon winds off the Pacific Ocean, resulting in balanced, vibrant wines.
