Wine Spectator, July 2013 “Santa Barbara experienced the same quirky weather as the rest of California in 2011 and produced mixed results as a consequence. This selection of Pinot Noirs from the Sta. Rita Hills appellation shows some of the vintage’s highlights, with four outstanding choices.

Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills Reserve 2011: 90 points Deep and intense, with firm, gripping tannins cloaking a core of earthy raspberry, anise and black cherry. Firm on the finish, imbuing the flavors with traction. Best from 2014 through 2022. 299 cases made.” — J.L.
