Pali 'Huntington' Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County 2015
Candied nose of sweet cherries, dark chocolate, cinnamon, ripe strawberries, maple syrup, boysenberries, toasted oak, and dried thyme.

The mid-palate swells with rich acid and flavours of baking spices (clove, mace, cardamom). Long, elegant finish with black licorice, more red fruit and hints of black tea. Ruby Red, Garnet in colour, bright clarity – medium bodied.

Black plum, black raspberry, rose petal and wet graphite aromas show on the nose of this always reliable and well-priced bottling from the Lompoc-based winery. Earthy mushroom and loam flavours meet graphite and tangy raspberry notes on the palate.
