2020 Rancho Real Vineyard Pinot Noir
Santa Maria Valley
The Rancho Real Vineyard is known for steep hillside topography, sandy soils and maritime influence from the nearby Pacific Ocean. These combine to produce grapes layered with deep and complex flavors.
The Rancho Real Vineyard is a lovely example of classic Pinot Noir from Santa Maria Valley. It bursts with red fruit aromas of cranberry, raspberry and cherry accented with a hint of cinnamon and chocolate. The finish is long and lingering, leading you wanting another sip.
This Pinot Noir from Santa Maria Valley calls for a classic cut of beef from the same region, Santa Maria Valley tri-tip. Prepare grilled with roasted vegetables to draw out the red fruit and spice flavors in this lovely wine.
