Sea Smoke 2012 Southing Sea Smoke Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills)

Cellar Selection

Named after the famed vineyard's south-facing slopes, this vintage is expertly crafted, with aromas of ripe red cherry, sandalwood, black pepper, graphite, purple flowers and damp pine needles. It's complex, with dark red fruit and tickling cardamom spice set against fine-grained tannins. Quite precise and tight now, the violet and rose petal elements will expand beautifully with time, so drink 2019–2025. Matt Kettmann
