Wine: Three Saints Pinot Noir 2009
Country: United States
Appellation: Santa Barbara
This small production Pinot is produced from selected grapes from three Santa Barbara AVAs: Santa Maria, Santa Rita, and Santa Ynez, hence the name. This is a very fruit forward Pinot, with currant, raspberry and ripe cherry flavors. It is a wine crafted for immediate consumption, meaning it won’t get any better than it is now. There is also a terrific Cabernet made under this label, which is a second label of sorts for Dierberg Vineyards, known for their upscale Pinot Noirs and Cabernets.
