Tasting Notes

"This is one of the more elegant and satisfyingly dark expressions of Pinot Noir in its price range, starting with aromas of sugarplum, hibiscus, dark berries, crushed slate and moist earth. The palate combines rose petals, baked boysenberry and dark cocoa with a strong streak of earthy minerality, all upheld by chalky tannins."

The Producer

Lafond

In 1962, Pierre Lafond, aged thirty-two, established the first commercial winery in Santa Barbara County after the end of prohibition. Two years later, he set up a winery facility on Anacapa Street, merely two blocks away from the Pacific Ocean.

Santa Barbara Winery has gained significant visibility and success, earning numerous awards for a variety of wines. Lafond is currently undergoing a substantial expansion to cater to the demands of the consuming public.

Originally a retailer, Lafond's wine and cheese shop served as a gathering spot for many of Santa Barbara's wine enthusiasts. His decision to enter wine production stemmed from two reasons: his appreciation for fine wines, particularly French ones, and the belief that it would be a sound business venture.

Lafond Winery has been privileged to produce and gain national recognition for their acclaimed Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Syrahs.
