Alma Rosa Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2020
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
With a stunning deep ruby color, our Sta. Rita Hills Pinot is aromatic and vibrant on the nose. This gorgeous Pinot has vibrant, red fruit tones such as red cherries, cranberries, wild strawberries that are blended pleasantly with notes of orange peel, raw cocoa, rose petals, sage and thyme. The tannins are well pronounced but smooth in this wine, giving it good structure. Vivid flavors of raspberries, walnuts and wet stone integrate with nicely notes of minerality. Our Sta Rita Hills Pinot is pairs beautifully with lamb, chicken, grilled skirt steak and pasta dishes

The 2020 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is a soft, supple wine to drink now and over the next few years. Inky dark red/purplish fruit, rose petal, spice and lavender are front and center. This juicy, open-knit Pinot is terrific. Most of the fruit is from the estate, with a touch of Bentrock blended.
