2018 BARDEN SANTA RITA HILLS PINOT NOIR

$48.00 $48.00

Doug Margerum has been involved in Santa Barbara’s food and wine culture since his family purchased the restaurant Wine Cask in the early 1980s and brought international recognition to the region by founding the Santa Barbara Wine Cask Futures Program in 1984. Doug co-owned Vita Nova with Bob Lindquist of Qupé and Jim Clendenen of Au Bon Climat for several years before creating the Margerum label in 2001, primarily focusing on Rhône varietals.

Margerum released Barden in 2014, shifting his focus to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown in the cool Sta. Rita Hills AVA, where the coastal influence produces grapes with higher acidity and more elegant aromas. The 2018 Pinot Noir is a limited production, boutique-style wine that defines the region’s terroir with a refined earthy, spicy, vibrant fruit character and is a formidable opponent in the competitive world of Pinots.

2018 BARDEN SANTA RITA HILLS PINOT NOIR

"The 2018 Pinot Noir Barden (Sta. Rita Hills) balances the natural generosity of the appellation with Doug Margerum’s preference for wines of restraint. Floral, blood orange and spice accents add nuance to the bright red raspberry fruit in this impeccably balanced, alluring Pinot Noir. The 2018 will be irresistible upon release.”

"Hearty aromas of boysenberry, singed meat, rosemary and cardamom make for a heady nose on this appellation blend. The palate is driven by spice and herb, showing nutmeg, rosemary and pine needle, alongside the dark-plum core of fruit."
