Sourced from Zotovich Vineyards in the coveted Santa Rita Hills AVA of Santa Barbara County, these Pinot Noir vines live just nine miles from the ocean and experience a very cool and long growing season. Situated in sandy loam soils, Zotovich produces Pinot Noir that is highly aromatic and briskly complex, and the 2018 A.V.A.trix is true to the site.
The aromatics boast a profound mix of savory peppers and cola with subtle hints of sweet honeysuckle flowers and caramelized brown sugar, surrounded by a mix of dried cranberry and high-toned white pepper. The wine greets the tongue with a bright and glassy acidity in tandem with a seamlessly soft structure that is bolstered by an undertone of earthy mushrooms and sweet lavender.
