AWARD WINNING WINES
2014 Pinot Noir
The 2014 Blue Cape Cellars Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills Reserve was our fourth award winning Pinot Noir, garnering a silver medal in the 2015 San Francisco International Wine Competition. This vintage was the first of our Pinot Noir vintages made from a single clone (clone 2A) and is the first of our wines to be lightly filtered. The wine was aged entirely in used French oak barrels mostly 2 to 4 years old at the time.
The 2014 Pinot Noir is mature, and retains good acid and a taste of tart cherries and some mulling spices and mineral elements in the nose. It shows a beautiful light garnet color and provides a full to medium bodied mouthfeel and a warm long finish. This is a perfect wine for chicken, grilled salmon or even rare prime rib.
