Saturated red. Powerful, smoky aromas of dark berries and cherry compote, with exotic spice and incense notes adding complexity. Deeply concentrated black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are enlivened by a suave mineral quality and framed by velvety tannins. Distinctly rich pinot with very good finishing breadth and a lingering note of candied licorice.

Overbearing oak. Off balance. Good bouquet but supported by oak tannins. Drink now

About This Producer


For years, vintners have coveted a stretch of land in the western end of Santa Barbara's Santa Rita Hills AVA known to have the perfect microclimate, soils, and exposure to grow world-class Pinot Noir. In 1999, fulfilling a long-held dream of owner Bob Davids, this sought-after stretch of land became Sea Smoke Vineyard.

Sea Smoke produces Pinot Noir grown exclusively on the south-facing hillsides of their estate vineyards. On summer evenings, the Santa Ynez River canyon funnels a cool maritime fog layer (sea "smoke") across the hillsides, slowing the ripening process and providing the extended maturation period essential to the development of top-quality Pinot Noir.
