2016 Pinot Noir
2016 John Sebastiano Pinot Noir:
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Vineyard: John Sebastiano
Region: Sta Rita Hills, Santa Barbara, CA
Bottle Size: 750ml
Another classic rendition of John Sebastiano Pinot. Displaying notes of rose petals and red fruits and Sebastiano’s signature herbal profile. This time the new oak proportion is Fouailly, a small Burgundian cooper. It’s 30% of the blend so it is quite prominent but does not mask the wine. We feel that it counters nicely with the herbal elements and rounds out the palate.
