95pointsLeitmotif 2016 Duvarita Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Barbara County)

This is a phenomenal start for the small-batch side project by Stephen Searle, whose main job is running Jaffurs Winery. Intense aromas of Bing cherry jelly, crushed rocks and dried sage show on the nose, while the palate combines wild berry and minty flavors with a strong chalky grip, proving both luxurious and refreshing.
