This latest Zotovich “Seabiscuit” bottling is by far Paul’s best effort to date! I would say that it will rival his 97 Point rated 2013 version!  As it is the case with all of Paul’s wines, I get limited amounts of this great gems, so I can only remind you how great and limited they are!


Paul Lato Notes: “Robust and explosive, this is an exquisite expression of a previously-neglected vineyard that is now becoming a thoroughbred with the proper attention. The nose is huge, bursting with redcurrant, blueberry, and iodine in rich array. The strength of the aromatics is matched on the palate as sturdy, age-worthy tannins reveal wave after wave of dried fruit and hard spice.”


Pinot File 97 Points: "This vineyard is located in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills off Hwy 246. A collaboration between Steve Zotovich, his family, and vineyard manager Ben Merz. Dijon clones 113 and 115. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Inviting aromas of black cherry, sous-bois, mushroom and spice. Vivid and vibrant in the mouth with a mid weight core of wellspiced blackberry goodness. Silky, fine-grain tannins satisfy, as does the elegant demeanor, lasting finish, and overall harmony. Even better the following day when tasted from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 97"


Robert Parker 2014 - 95 Points: “Showing the more savory, dried earth and sandy loam-like characteristics that are the hallmark of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA is the 2014 Pinot Noir Seabiscuit Zotovich Vineyard (aged 15 months in 70% new French oak). It has lots of bright cherry, forest floor, spice and dried flowers to go with a supple, gorgeously polished style on the palate. It still has a kiss of new oak, so give it a year in bottle.”
