K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Our latest vintage of this delightful wine displays a vivid ruby-red hue and bright, fragrant, fruit-forward aromas of black cherry, red raspberry, blackberry and pomegranate, complemented by a whiff of rose hips tea. On the palate, the wine delivers intense, juicy, strawberry, cherry, plum and blackberry flavors that take on a zesty, tea-leaf spice tone en route to a long, fruitful, mineral-tinged finish. Delicious now with foods like grilled salmon, rotisserie chicken, roast duck, and lamb, this vibrant, varietally expressive Pinot Noir will age gracefully in bottle for the next 2-3 years. We craft our Gainey Vineyard Pinot Noir exclusively from grapes grown at our two vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills appellation located at the western edge of the Santa Ynez Valley - Evan’s Ranch & Rancho Esperanza. These cool, marine-influenced sites, just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean, are ideal for the cultivation of world-class Pinot Noir."

    Gainey is truly a stalwart in Santa Barbara County. This 4th generation farming family have been integral to the growth of premium wine from the region. With estate plantings dating back to the early 1980's, the Gainey family have been instrumental in forging the excellent reputation of Sta. Rita Hills grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. When you look at the price tag on this estate grown and bottled, Sta. Rita Hills AVA wine you might be surprised by how inexpensive it is! But don't be fooled, this is the real deal, cool-climate Pinot that defines the region. Bright red fruits, bramble, dusty spice, juicy acidity from the cool ocean breezes and lovely lingering minerals from the white diatomaceous soils. A balanced, pure, quaffable wine with lots of character and drive. Such a value when you consider many of their neighbors are at least twice the price!
    Top Value!
