2015 Pinot Noir, “Jump Up”, Sta. Rita Hills
A first sip is a tell-tale of the vintage, with spicy white-pepper notes enveloped by cherry (sour cherry and some just ripe Bing cherry) along with the rocky minerality that is a hallmark of the appellation. Pomegranate-like flavor and acidity and a silky texture interlaced with soft tea-like tannins round out this balanced, approachable and pretty wine.
