I'm so happy to feature this single vineyard Pinot Noir on WineSkipping! Earning 91 Points from Wine Enthusiast, this Santa Rita Hills, CA wine also was also voted the favorite among 38 other wines at a recent local San Mateo wine tasting event that I hosted. I was so impressed with this Pinot and it's ability to polarize this group as a favorite, that I had to get my hands on it to feature here and in WineSkipping's December wine club shipment.
