CHANIN PINOT NOIR, SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 2016
NVWE Notes: Bright, focused and elegant, the nose of this lovely Pinot Noir offers scents of whortleberry, strawberry, grenadine, orange zest, pink peppercorn, sumac berry, hazelnut nougat and a hint of ginger. At opening the texture is firm and the flavors seem a slightly less evolved echo of the aromas, being a bit tighter in fruit expression and richer in oak. As the wine airs, the mouth-feel grows more supple and the flavors grow into a rich and lingering panorama of red plum, red currant, grenadine, bottled red cherry, blueberry, rose, mulling spices, sandalwood, sumac, peppercorn, baking-spice and nougat. Delicious now, it will be more so in another year. 1000 cases produced.

The 2016 Pinot Noir (Santa Barbara County) is an addition to Gavin Chanin's range. Sweet red cherry and floral notes are nicely pushed forward in this tasty, appellation-level Pinot. Drink it over the next few years.
