Birthday wine 🥳 — 3 days ago
This afternoon I have opened the 2016 Gainey Vineyard Santa Barbara County Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir. The Gainey Vineyard has been around since 1962 and has been producing wonderful wines since then.
On the nose there is strawberry, raspberry, cherry cola, rosemary, herbal and vegetal notes, slight hint of vanilla and oak with an earthy undertone.
On the palate there is cherry, raspberry, plum, clove, spice, light oak, lavender and an earthy backbone.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity and medium to + fine tannin that leads into a medium long fruit and earthy finish. I hope everyone has had a wonderful long weekend and are ready to get back to the grind. Please be safe and enjoy the short work week. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 9 months ago

Bouquet is great, slight spice. Not much of a finish, but I'd get it again. — 4 years ago
