The 2016 Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir is a blend of equal parts, the La Encantada and Hilliard Bruce Vineyards. These two vineyards are uniquely located on the cool western edges of this appellation. La Encantada enjoys a touch more afternoon warmth in clay and alluvium based soils, while the Hilliard Bruce Vineyard sits on the deep end of Route 246 in sandy loam.
