2014 Sea Smoke "Southing" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1278997 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Crisp boysenberry and black raspberry aromas meet with lthyme, oregano and a touch of caramelization on the nose of this Sea Smoke bottling. Dark cranberry fruit shows on the palate, lifted by anise, pepper and an array of herbs, all framed by a leathery texture. *Cellar Selection* (MK) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Features an ironclad structure, with lots of graphite and slate accents to the dense dark currant and dried plum flavors, supported by firm tannins. Accents of chocolate nibs show on the finish. Needs some short-term aging in the cellar. (KM) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

K&L Notes

A darling of the critics, Sea Smoke remains of the Central Coast's cult Pinot producers. Southing is sourced entirely from the Sea Smoke Estate Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and saw 16 months in 55% new French oak barrels. Southing consistently earns 90+ point scores from Robert Parker each vintage. Notes from the winery on the 2014 bottling: "Each year, our goal for Southing is to create the ideal marriage of complexity and elegance. The ever-changing nose of the 2014 Southing exhibits Montmorency cherry, baking spice and dried flowers. The fine tannins and minerality are enhanced by our estate vineyard’s characteristic cool-climate acidity."
