Seven miles from the ocean, La Encantada (“The Enchanted”) vineyard is planted to some of the most sought-after Pinot Noir grapes in the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. This wine opens with subtle notes of red and black cherry, smoked salt, dark plum, thyme and pine. Bright, fresh acid and peppery, spicy notes awaken your palate, after which a rush of red cherry and cranberry flavors washes over your palate. Beautiful and complex.
Siduri specializes in producing cool-climate Pinot Noir from six major appellations along the West Coast, stretching from the Willamette Valley in Oregon, down to California’s Santa Barbara County. Since the winery’s founding in 1994, their goal remains the same, to produce Pinot Noir that best captures the distinct flavor and character of a given vineyard site. To that end, they source only from vineyards that provide exceptional fruit.
