Pinot Noir of Month / 95 Points

 

Two brothers (John & Steve Dragonette) teamed up with their good buddy Brandon Sparks-Gillis to pursue their live-long dream to make wine. They gained valuable experiences at wineries like Sine Qua Non, Torbreck, Fiddlehead Cellars before they started this awesome venture. Over the past couple of years the press has been (rightfully so) generous to these three great guys. They source from some of the most sought after vineyards in Santa Barbara, Santa Rita Hills & Santa Ynez.

Explosive from the get-go.  On the nose you’ll encounter loads of of blackberry, cherry compote and a touch of spice.  The wine is medium tofull in body, lush, deep and seamless, offering bright red stone fruit and cherry-cola essences complemented by a touch of barnyard spice, giving it a Burgundian quality.  VERY LIMITED

95 Points Jeb Dunnuck (Formerly with Robert Parker): “Coming from a frigidly cold site in the Sta. Rita Hills and gravelly, loamy soils, the Dragonette Pinot Noir Radian Vineyard is gorgeous. Black raspberries, dried herbs, peppery herbs and hints of leather give way to a ripe, medium-bodied, beautifully textured and seamless wine that has good acidity and light, yet present tannin. Count me as a fan and it will drink well for a decade as well.”
