Before Liquid Farm, our glasses were often filled with old world wine. We preferred the lower alcohol, cooler climate, and more earth-driven characteristics of European wines compared to their more ripe, fruit-focused, more alcoholic Californian counterparts.
While SBC stands for Santa Barbara County, the 2021 is once again specifically all Sta. Rita Hills, featuring Radian, Sanford & Benedict, La Rinconada, and Kessler-Haak vineyards. Small amounts of new French oak and stems lay the structural foundation while a brief elevage promotes the freshness and fruitiness everyone expects from this AVA.
"Pale ruby, the 2021 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County offers detailed aromas of cranberries, blackberries, oolong tea leaves, potpourri, earth, orange peel and fernet. Medium-bodied, it floods the mouth with layer after layer of bitters-tinged fruits, boasting fine, dusty tannins, addicting freshness and a very long, detailed finish. This way overdelivers for its modest appellation-wide status!" - 96 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
