2019 Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir Santa Barbara
Winemaker Notes: The Pinot Noir crop ripened slowly and evenly, giving the resulting wine a fruit driven aroma followed by complex flavors of green tea, strawberry, cranberry, clove, and unsweetened dark chocolate. This Pinot reminds us of our 2005 Santa Barbara County. Both wines have a freshness that should last for years, but with a real Pinot Noir backbone that will slowly develop for at least another 10 years.
Like all Au Bon Climat wines, this is a food wine. In its youth, match this wine with lamb or dried meats. After a few years, as the flavors coalesce, it will pair better with salmon or mild red sauce with pasta. We have enjoyed this wine with many food choices from spicy Indian dishes to all-American sandwiches, and the wine worked well with most anything. The possible food pairings are almost endless.
