Point Concepcion 2012 Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara County
Peter Cargasacchi is a vineyard owner and winemaker in California's Central Coast. He grows grapes in his Cargascchi Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA and another vineyard in Santa Barbara County. He makes his Point Concepcion wines from grapes he sources in the same region. The Point is where California's coast line turns inward creating a turbulent effect as cold waters flowing down from the arctic meet warm southern waters. The winds blowing inland cause an intense cooling effect across the whole region. This is why Pinot Noir, a distinctly cool climate grape, does so well in this southerly region. The cooling effect slows the grape development balancing the flavors and maintaining bright acidity. Sourced entirely from the Dierberg vineyard in Santa Maria Valley, at an altitude of 400 feet, the grapes for this wine benefit fully from the cooling ocean breezes as well as the outstanding 2012 vintage conditions. The wine was whole berry fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged in 1, 2 and 3 year old French oak barrels. It shows black cherry, plum, strawberry and sassafras on the nose. It's mouthfilling and ripe on the palate with a very polished tannic backbone and bright mouthwatering acidity. The flavors are lush; black cherry, black plums, cinnamon spice, cola and black tea. The finish is long and satisfying. Less 700 cases were produced of this handcrafted Pinot. Get it while it's On Sale!

      Comments about Point Concepcion 2012 Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara County:

      This is no pushover Pinot. An approachable nose of red and black cherry, plum and peppery spice lead to a palate with similar flavors along with smoke, nutmeg and earthy notes. It has some great depth and body for a Pinot, yet the acidity remains lively throughout. My kind of Pinot for sure...

      • Game, Poultry, Seafood
