Pinot Noir is a demanding grape - each vintage deeply affected by changes in climate and soil composition. Fortunately for us, Santa Barbara County is both well suited to this noble grape and remarkably temperate, allowing us to produce award-winning wine year after year. The Rusack SBC Pinot Noir is popular among restaurateurs. Packed with bright spicy flavors of strawberries, coffee, and caramel, it is a very approachable, food-friendly wine and a local favorite. The grapes for this Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir hail from two vineyards, both influenced by the cooling fog of the nearby Pacific and perfectly suited for growing Pinot Noir. Upon delivery to the winery early in the morning, the grapes were de-stemmed and placed into small 1-ton bins, where they were punched down by hand 2-3 times each day. The resulting wine was transferred into French oak barrels, of which 20% were new, and aged for 10 months. It was then bottled unfiltered, given a few months of bottle aging to allow the flavors to integrate, and released in winter 2013. 1825 cases were produced. Optimum Storage Conditions: Constant temperature, 55-58° f, darkness Aging Potential: To enjoy young fruit aromas, consume within 1-2 years of bottling date. For extended aging under ideal conditions, consume within 2-5 years of bottling date. Vineyards: John Sebastiano (76%), Solomon Hills (24%) Bottle analysis: Alcohol 14.2%, pH 3.41, ta 0.675 g/100ml Pinot Noir pairs well with salmon or tuna and meaty white fish, lean red meats, duck, turkey, and fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme.
