Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2021
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara|
|Brand||Au Bon Climat|
The 2021 Pinot Noir crop ripened slowly and evenly. The result was a nose loaded with dark fruits. A smokey, plummy note is first noticed and then fresher strawberry and melons aromas slowly become evident. The deep ruby color looks great in the glass, and the flavors are a "knock out". This is not a wine that will take time to express its potential; it is a rich and satisfying experience even at this young age We have enjoyed this wine with many food choices from spicy Indian dishes to all-American sandwiches, and the wine works well with most anything. The balance and fresh acid of this wine makes the food pairing possibilities nearly limitless.
