2021 Deep Sea Pinot Noir
The Pinot Noir grapes for this vintage of Deep Sea Pinot Noir are sourced from an acclaimed Los Alamos Vineyard site. Original cuttings for this vineyard were brought over from Europe 25 years ago. Unlike the rosé version of this delightful wine, the Pinot Noir for the “Diving Helmet” label is fermented on the skins to obtain maximum tannin and pigment (coloration). The ruby red color and good structure of this wine come from the time it spends macerating on the skins. Our classic Santa Barbara Pinot Noir offers delicate cherry and strawberry fruit notes, and a whisper of toasted vanilla, soft oak notes, and excellent structure. Smells Like: Fresh cherries, pomegranate and crushed berries. Tastes Like: Strawberries and fresh Cherries, with a subtle toasted vanilla finish.
