2009 Smoke & Mirrors Pinot Noir

Only 75 cases produced

Smoke & Mirrors is a medium bodied Pinot Noir, very much in the Santa Barbara County style. A single vineyard bottling, the fruit was harvested from three separate blocks in the La Encantada vineyard, each planted to a different Pinot clone. The result is a multi-­layered wine that will continue to improve with age.
The nose is loaded with ripe strawberry, dark cherries and spice. Lush and lively across the palate, with soft integrated tannins and elegant layers of red fruit, nuanced by earthy tones that sail to the clean, finessed finish. Drink now-­‐2016.

La Encantada was planted in 2001 by Richard Sanford – the godfather of Santa Ynez Pinot Noir. The vineyard is located on the cooler west side of Sta. Rita Hills. Here, the mountains run east to west, funneling troughs of chilly temperatures and fog in from the coast. La Encantada was the first certified organic site in Santa Barbara and is planted to a range of Dijon clones, producing tiny clusters with yields hovering around 2 tons per acre. The result is dark cherry, earth and spice – the essence of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir.
