    Combines a mix of bold, ripe and richly flavored black cherry, wild berry, plum and blackberry fruit with touches of spice, cedar and wild berry. Ends with a long, elegant, detailed finish.

    The medium ruby-colored 2006 Pinot Noir Ten (which signifies the 10 different clones from which it is produced) reveals a sumptuous perfume of raspberries, black cherries, strawberries, underbrush, and spice. Volnay-like in the mouth with loads of red fruits, medium to full body, sweet tannins, and good acidity, this complex, evolved Pinot should be consumed over the next 3-4 years.

    Great Ten...hints of clove and bacon, leading to a cola-esgue entree, followed by a silky finish for a 30 second experience...

    Lush nose of ripe blueberries. Follows through onto the palate. Decent subtle spice and delicate oak. Nice dry finish.

    NR alcohol Aromas: subtle nose that gains with air showing rich, sweet black cherry and pomegranate Palate: beautiful in the mouth, balanced, polished with delicately intwined sweet, and bright red fruits, and licorice Impression: hands down one of my favorite wine of the day, if you can find it - buy it

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.
