The 2018 Pinot Noir uses fruit exclusively sourced from the Burning Creek Ranch Vineyard in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills. Following the success of the Lafond Vineyard Pinot Noirs, Bruce McGuire began to create wine using fruit from the neighboring Burning Creek Ranch. The 2018 Pinot Noir is made from nine year old vines that produce bright, fruit-forward flavors.


Winemaker's Comments: This wine is sourced from younger vines and more vigorous parts of the vineyard. It has forward fruit and is very accessible fruit.


Tasting Notes: The Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir shines a pure ruby with aromas of cherry cola, and cherry liqueur, followed by mild oak. Flavors of fresh plum, raspberry and dried herbs are carried by a well-developed tannic structure. This wine pairs great with duck confit, grilled salmon, and sauteéd mushrooms.
