2016 Pinot Noir - Santa Barbara County

42.00

If there is a variety that Santa Barbara County is famous for it is Pinot Noir. While the same story can be told about how this wine was made from different sites and different fermentations, what makes this wine unique is that it is 100% farmed by Roark Wine Co. The best barrels from each of our leased vineyards will find themselves in our vineyard level bottlings and the balance ends up in our regional wine.

During the 2016 growing season, we were farming two different Pinot vineyards; Burning Creek Ranch off of Santa Rosa Road in southern Sta. Rita Hills and a yet to be named plot overlooking La Purisima Mission east of Lompoc. Burning Creek Ranch is 70% clay and our most challenging site. The other ranch is almost pure beach sand and one of the easiest sites for controlling weeds. Each site makes very expressive wines but together they shocase something equally special.
