"I was especially impressed with the 2014 Pinot Noirs, all of which capture the best the vintage has to offer, namely linear, nervous energy and enticing aromatics"
- Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media "Santa Barbara On the Road, Continued..."
We are offering complimentary shipping on 3-packs of all three of our single vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noirs through 12/1.
RANCHO LA VINA
"The 2014 Rancho La Vina is soft, supple and very nicely balanced. Sweet re cherry, plum, white flowers and cinnamon grace the palate. Nicely linear and focused, with good overall energy, the 2014 is a very pretty wine to drink now and over the next few years. Sweet rose petal and lavender notes add perfume on the finish."
"Another gorgeous wine, the 2014 Pinot Noir Rita's Crown als has the most depth and density of the Potek Pinots this year. Inky red and purplish fruit, savor herbs and the inherent structure of this rugged, mountain site all come through in spades. I especially like the wine's explosive energy and overall tension. The 2014 was done with 25% whole clusters and spent 14 months in barrel."
SANFORD & BENEDICT
"Potek's 2014 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict emerges from one of the original blocks in this famous Sta. Rita Hills vineyard. Pliant, supple and expressive, the 2014 captures the essence of S&B. Mid-weight and nicely perfumed, the 2014 S&B is another pretty wine to drink now and over the next few years. In this vintage Dave Potter halved the whole cluster inclusion to about 15% because the early harvest did not allow the stems to get fully ripe."
