Longoria 2007 Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Fe Ciega Vineyard

When winemaker Rick Longoria decided to step out on his own in 1982, he chose to focus initially on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, producing small quantities of each with fruit sourced from Santa Maria. Almost three decades later, his portfolio of wines is a veritable sampling of all that Santa Barbara has to offer, though his rising reputation rests on Pinot Noir—particularly that from his estate vineyard, Fe Ciega. The Longoria 2007 Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Fe Ciega Vineyard is a bold expression, black-red in color with deep aromas of black cherry, boysenberry, and sweet curry. The texture is smooth as satin, and the palate progresses from a profusion of black cherry to sweet, damp tobacco, cinnamon, smoky chaparral, and finally sandalwood and white pepper.
