96The Wine Advocate

...bursting with scents of cranberries, blackberries, tea leaves, citrus peel and savory spices. The medium-bodied palate is silky, spicy and seamless as it glides into a long, detailed, earthy finish. Lovely!

96Jeb Dunnuck

It shows the spicy, savory, salty style of the appellation, yet all with restraint, and it's the purity of fruit that leads, with gorgeous ripe raspberries, cherries, and mulberries all front and center. More medium-bodied, elegant, and impeccably balanced...

95James Suckling

Aromas of ripe strawberries, bark and earth follow through to a medium to full body with soft, round tannins. Hints of earth and meatiness at the end. Succulent. Vibrant acidity.

93Vinous / IWC

...gracious and beautifully lifted. Crushed rose petal, mint, spice, raspberry and mint lend presence to this effusive, alluring Pinot. Sandy soils at Zotovich always yield Pinots of aromatic presence.


United States, California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara County, Santa Rita Hills

Santa Rita Hills AVA in northern Santa Barbara County was granted appellation status in 2001. Located between the towns of Lompoc and Buellton, it has a total area of 30,720 acres with 2,700 vineyard acres. The area is considered a cool climate for vineyards, so vineyards are most often planted with the cool-weather grapes Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The hills in the western part of this appellation are directly exposed to the Pacific Ocean, meaning that maritime winds and fog make the western edge of the Santa Rita Hills AVA particularly cool. The Sanford & Benedict Vineyard planted in 1971 was the first vineyard in the district and is still considered one of the best.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
