2014 Chanin "Los Alamos Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

SKU #1362125 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Gavin Chanin is expert at showing off individual vineyards, which is most evident in this bottling from a less iconic, larger site. Baked cherry, allspice, raw beef and light bay leaf show on the nose, while the palate carries ripe strawberry and a red-cherry core surrounded by zesty thyme, dill, mint and a touch of green olive. The light yet grippy texture is stunning. *Editors' Choice* (MK) Inner quote mark (9/2016)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Plums, passion fruit, spring flowers and hints of violet all emerge from the silky, beautifully polished 2014 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard, which comes from very sandy soils located just outside of Los Alamos. It spent 12 months in a tiny 12% of new French oak. Medium-bodied and exceedingly elegant, with beautifully polished tannin, it should evolve nicely for a decade. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Chanin's 2014 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard is gracious, aromatic and nicely lifted, all signatures of the sandy soils on this site. The fruit is forward and juicy, with just a dollop of whole clusters that adds balance and intrigue. Sweet, succulent and open-knit, the 2014 will drink well pretty much upon release. There is so much to like here. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2016)

Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The sandy soils of Los Alamos usually grow one of Gavin Chanin’s friskier, more linear Pinot Noirs. This 2014 is delicate but softer than usual, its maraschino cherry and herb flavors clean and mild. Pour it with sautéed button mushrooms. Inner quote mark (4/2016)
