WA 96

Wine Advocate

The 2020 Pinot Noir Suerte Solomon Hills Vineyard comes from 20-year-old vines farmed by Chris Hammell and was matured for 17 months in 52% new French oak. It has a pale ruby color and deep scents of cranberry, sour cherries, Earl Grey tea, licorice, mushrooms and autumn leaves. The medium-bodied palate is concentrated and supple with fireworks of fresh acidity to call you back on the long, flavorful finish.
JD 95

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2020 Pinot Noir Suerte Solomon Hills Vineyard comes from a great, tiny site outside of Santa Maria and was destemmed and spent 17 months in 52% new French oak. It has some classic Santa Maria minerality and marine-like iodine nuances as well as darker cherry and berry fruits, notes of baking spices, chocolate, and loamy earth, medium to full body, a round, concentrated mouthfeel, and a great finish. This rich, serious effort will benefit from just a year or two of bottle age and should have a decade of prime drinking.
VIN 95

Vinous

The 2020 Pinot Noir Solomon Hills Vineyard Suerte is a fabulous example of what this Santa Maria site is all about. Dense, rich and explosive, the 2020 offers up copious dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and a kiss of new French oak, with silky tannins and soft contours that wrap it all up.

santa maria valley
 
The Santa Maria Valley, a gem in the crown of California’s wine country, boasts a rich and textured history as a wine-producing region, with its roots extending back to the establishment of the American Viticultural Area (AVA) in 1981. Located in the northern sector of Santa Barbara County, it proudly stands as the county's inaugural AVA, though its viticultural heritage stretches far beyond this modern recognition, reaching back into the depths of the 18th century.
