Red and blueberry fruit leap from the glass. he glass. Bright fruit-loam, sage and violets combine with aromatics that are uniquely Santa Maria Valley. Fruity, spicy and mouth-watering, this is classic Pinot Noir. Minimal oak influence lets this wine lead with a sense of place and finishes with an elegant balance.
Pair with wild mushroom in pastry, classic casserole, duck confit, French cheese or even a burger or pizza are excellent matches.
Jeb Dunnuck 90 - Lastly, the 2018 Pinot Noir J. Wilkes Santa Maria Valley comes from the Santa Maria Valley and was brought up in 30% new French oak. Candied cherries, violets, orange blossom, and sappy flower notes all emerge from the glass. It’s nicely textured and medium-bodied, with a subtle, elegant style and a good finish.
