"Readers looking for a charming, delicious Pinot Noir that has plenty of character yet doesn't break the bank should check out the 2017 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County from Adam Lee. It has plenty of classic strawberry and cherry fruits, some subtle forest floor and spice nuances, medium body, and a fruit-forward, balanced style." (JD)

"Winemaker Adam Lee's first crack at a Santa Barbara County blend is a hit, and he plays in the lighter end of the Pinot Noir spectrum as well. Aromas of crushed slate, red cherry and rose petals lead into a bouncy palate that's tart in flavors of pomegranate and raspberry." (WE)

Winery Notes:
The 2017 vintage provided a wonderful opportunity to create a Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir, which is sourced from vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Maria Velley. It showcases the vibrancy and depth of flavor so synonymous with the region while mirroring the charm and romance that we’ve always found in the area. And, much like a good romance, the wine is wonderful now, but will only improve with time.
