2016 feels like another step forward for this young vineyard. Showing the purity of 2014 but with more depth and mystery like 2015, this vintage makes its mark with a bit more fruit and less spice than we typically see with Drum Canyon. To articulate the nose is to do you a disservice; part of the pleasure of this wine is the time spent lingering with the aromatics, enjoying its various complexity. The mouthfeel and finish are pure, clean, well-structured and long. It's a compelling wine that is easy to go back to, but has much more to reveal with time.

This bottling from a vineyard in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills begins with aromas of earthy soils, dried herbs and bright Bing cherries. The palate's dark red, almost boysenberry fruit tones are both crisp and ripe, wrapped in a rocky, earthy tension that's mouthfilling and bright, finishing on a hint of French toast.

The 2016 Pinot Noir Drum Canyon Vineyard, made with 25% whole cluster and aged 16 months in 35% new French oak, is pale to medium ruby and youthfully reticent, very slowly revealing Bing cherries, cranberry, woodsmoke, earth, moss-covered bark, underbrush and wild blackberries. Medium-bodied, it offers intense flavor layers with lots of earthy nuance, a sturdy frame of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long. 700 cases produced.
