(2012 Vintage) Lyric by Etude is an authentic expression of Santa Barbara Pinot Noir. Crafted to provide a pure sense of place, Lyric is reflective of the region's nuances with its signature silky texture and bright red fruit flavor profile. Ruby in the glass, the rich color alludes to the impactful nose, packed with bright aromas of fresh strawberry and ripe cherry that are beautifully balanced out by warm baking spice notes. This youthful Pinot Noir delivers fresh, robust red berry flavors while still maintaining substantial weight on the palate. The bright acidity, balanced structure and velvety tannins
This is a Pinot by the glass at the hotel bar. Aroma of berries with a hint of spice. Well blended cherry and blackberry flavors with modest acidity and tannins and smooth finish.
Fair but not our favorite. Had it with flatbreads - smoked salmon and pear; then with teriyaki salmon.
Dark raspberry and barn wood aromas. Dark fruit and cedar on the palate. Medium-bodied.
Complex Pinot. Fruit forward, hint of cherry and tobacco. A bit of a tart finish.
