The 2019 Pinot Noir Suerte Solomon Hills Vineyard, which comes from a sandy site in Santa Maria, was all destemmed and spent 17 months in 62% new French oak. Lots of ripe raspberry and wild strawberry fruit is the name of the game here, and it has classic forest floor, spice, and floral nuances as well as some marine-like sea breeze with time in the glass. With moderate acidity, a round, lush texture, and ripe tannins, it's another ready-to-go, sexy, seamless wine in the lineup that does everything right. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years.
