Accolades

  • 88-91 points Wine Spectator “Well-structured, with a dark fruit medley of ripe, zesty red cherry, currant, boysenberry and blackberry. Ends with a smooth, tapered finish and fine-grained tannins.”

Located in eastern Santa Barbara County in the Cuyama Valley, Alta Mesa Vineyard sits perched above Barnwood Vineyards at 3200 feet in elevation. Planted in 2000 to 8 X 5 spacing (1089 vines per acre), this vineyard is home to 9.5 acres of Grenache (Tablas clone A on 1103P & 101-14 rootstock). The soils consist of decomposed granite and clay loam with large rocks of schist, quartzite, basalt, and gneiss. There is a massive swing of daily temperatures that is very beneficial to the growing of these grapes, most often a 40 – 50 difference between day and night. Daytime high temperatures are lowered by the arrival of cooling breezes from the north at approximately 2:00 in the afternoon.

Our tasting Notes:
Ridiculously good wine! Very dark and extracted color in the glass. Red berry fruit nose. Tastes of cherry, vanilla, raspberry – just like trying fruit samples at the farmers market. Incredibly long finish with a little bit of tannins. Give this a few more months and then dig in.

Pacific Ridge Vineyards 2005 Pinot Noir
Retail $45 Now $31 only on Indie Winemakers.com
Only 241 Cases Produced!

The Santa Maria Valley is one of the crown jewels of California viticulture – producing some of the best cool-climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This Pinot Noir was sourced from 4 vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley AVA. Whole cluster fermentation was used with only a portion of the fruit, a fermentation of intact clusters as picked from the vine with no intervention of machines – all stems and berries are intact. This technique contributed to achieving a wine of greater complexity.  Indie Winemakers has a limited allocation of this wine available this week only.

Our website contains all technical data, tasting reviews and a suggested recipe to pair with this Pinot Noir.
