Winemaker Notes

Red and blueberry fruit leap from the glass. he glass. Bright fruit-loam, sage and violets combine with aromatics that are uniquely Santa Maria Valley. Fruity, spicy and mouth-watering, this is classic Pinot Noir. Minimal oak influence lets this wine lead with a sense of place and finishes with an elegant balance.

Pair with wild mushroom in pastry, classic casserole, duck confit, French cheese or even a burger or pizza are excellent matches.

Critical Acclaim

Tasting Panel

Wes Hagen’s talent shines through this exciting red, which confidently exudes lithe and feminine aromas of tart cranberries and rose petals. On the palate, vanilla-kissed cherry and white pepper intertwine with a garden of spring flowers and lively acidity. The texture feels glossy on the tongue.

The 2017 Pinot Noir is terrific. Bright red cherry, red plum, rose petal, lavender, blood orange and mint all jump from the glass in this racy, vivid Pinot Noir. Wonderfully pliant and inviting, this gorgeous, translucent Pinot has so much to offer. The purity of the flavors is just superb for a wine in this price range.
Wine Spectator
Bright cherry and berry flavors are fashioned to fresh acidity in this rich, fruity style. Spicy accents emerge on the minerally finish. Drink now through 2023.
Jeb Dunnuck

All destemmed and brought up 10 months in neutral barrels, the 2017 Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley from Wilkes offers a spicy bouquet of black cherries, ground herbs, spice box, and scorched earth. It has plenty of fruit, medium body, and rock-solid balance. This cuvée was all destemmed and spent 10 months in neutral oak.
