    Why is Pinot Noir the heartbreak grape?

    This variety is famously temperamental, reacting sensitively to its surroundings and showing variability across different vintages. Its unpredictable nature contributes to its challenging, yet intriguing reputation.

    What makes Pinot Noir unique?

    Pinot Noir's delicate thin skins and minimal phenolic compounds result in wines that are generally light in color, medium-bodied, and low in tannins. These wines can experience inconsistent aging periods and 'dumb phases,' where their flavors become muted. Typically, young Pinot Noir wines exhibit red fruit aromas like cherries, raspberries, and strawberries.

    What is the scientific name for Pinot Noir grapes?

    Vitis vinifera 'Pinot Noir' (O/B)

    Critical Acclaim

    Wine Advocate
    The 2018 Pinot Noir Seabiscuit Zotovich Vineyard has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and a nose of cranberries and raspberries, Earl Grey tea leaves, saline, rose petals and earth with hints of licorice. Medium-bodied, it's a stream of satiny sweet berry fruits, ultra juicy and spicy with a long, detailed finish. 315 cases produced.

    Jeb Dunnuck
    The 2018 Pinot Noir Seabiscuit Zotovich Vineyard, from the Sta. Rita Hills, saw a similar élevage and was all destemmed and brought up in 69% new French oak. Ruby/plum-colored, with a spicy, woody style in its red and black fruits, it has lots of cedary spice, flowery incense, and violet notes, medium to full body, a pure, balanced character, and a great finish. It's still relatively tight and focused and will benefit from another year in bottle. It should drink nicely through 2030.
