Alma Rosa 2018 La Encantada Vineyard Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills

The La Encantada vineyard, originally planted by Richard Sanford in 2000, produces wines that exemplify the greatest attributes of the Sta. Rita Hillsí southwest corridor year after year. This wine owes its distinctive minerality in part to the ancient, fossilized oceanic soils of the vineyard. Aromatically, aromas of white pepper, sage, thyme, citrus peel and rosehip waft from the glass. Texturally, this medium-bodied wine is framed by silky tannins and refreshing acidity. While it is drinking beautifully now, this impeccably balanced wine will continue to develop in the bottle for several years.

Wine Spectator - 93 Points
"Rich, plush and spicy, with creamy flavors of raspberry tart, dark plum and Christmas pudding that feature notes of cocoa powder. Shows an unctuous savoriness on the open-textured finish. Drink now through 2026."

Jeb Dunnuck - 92 Points
"The 2018 Pinot Noir La Encantada was also all destemmed and brought up in 40% new French oak. It has a slightly herbal, sappy undertone yet beautiful red and black fruits, spice, and floral aromatics, medium-bodied richness, the juicy, lively style of the vintage, and a clean finish. Itís another wine that will come together nicely with a year or three of bottle age and keep through 2030."
