"Huntington" is crafted from premium Pinot Noir grapes sourced from Riverbench Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley AVA and from our Pali Estate Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. This wine is carefully blended to express the unique flavors associated with Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir. True to the region, "Huntington's flavors consist of soft red fruits, particularly strawberries and raspberries and a variety of baking spices, clove, and cinnamon, along with such earthy components as black tea and mushrooms. This wine is fermented in small lots, barrel-aged in 20% new French oak for 15 months and then bottled in December 2018.
This wine combines grapes from the Riverbench Vineyard in Santa Maria Valley and the winery's estate property in the Sta. Rita Hills. Aromas of black raspberry, wild thyme and roasted fennel lead into a palate full of boysenberry, charred game and hints of marjoram and thyme.
