2005 Sea Smoke Cellars Southing Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Aromas of brioche, lily bouquet and sandy beach lead to discreetly intense flavors of cherry, strawberry.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Saturated red. Powerfully scented nose displays sexy red and dark berry liqueur, candied cherry and a musky floral quality. Deeply concentrated black raspberry and cherry flavors are energized by tangy minerals and pick up rooty licorice and sassafras with air. Finishes with notes of black pepper and smoky Indian spices and excellent persistence.

Expert Reviews
  • Wine & Spirits
    (From 2008 Vintage) The most balanced of Sea Smoke's three new Pinots, Southing was aged in about two-thirds new oak, which gives rich caramel, toasted coconut and exotic spice notes to the ripe fruit flavors. The wine explodes with cherries, raspberries, mulberries and even chocolate mint, finishing long and spicy, and leaving the impression of wholesomeness and completeness. Now showing its peak of youthful vivacity, this should develop for an additional six years.
