2010 Lea, Turner Vineyard Pinot Noir
Year after year this Pinot Noir clone (the Pommard clone) and this sandy-soiled, low yielding Sta. Rita Hills vineyard deliver beautiful fruit. The berries for this wine are consistently tiny and highly concentrated. In 2010 those berries got the added benefit of a long, cool growing season that allowed them time to hang out and grow in complexity. This wine is focused, round and lush in the mouth with notes of blackberry, blueberry and purple plums. While it has a solid tannic structure, the tannins themselves are soft and grainy making the wine very drinkable even at this young age. Pair this wine with anything from salmon to hearty beef dishes. We believe this Pinot will age well over the next 8 to 10 years.
