Robert Parker 96 Points: “Across the board, production is smaller in 2015 and I saw many of the same wines that I tasted from bottle in 2014, plus a few newer items. The only Pinot Noir offered was the 2015 Pinot Noir Santa Rita, which looks to be sensational, with exotic notes of blood oranges intermixed with black cherry, Asian spice and blacker fruits in a full-bodied, lush texture with loads of sweet tannin and plenty of glycerin. This will be a sexy beast when released in a year or so.”

Winemaker Notes: “This years Rita’s Crown Pinot Noir is almost as dark as our Syrah’s have been. It has ample acidity, but the power and richness are just so darn dominant here. Pomegranate, Raspberry and Santa Rosa Plum lead the charge, but tea and spice quickly make themselves known. The day after bottling I gave my Doctor, who is a huge Cabernet drinker, a bottle of this wine and a week later his wife called asking if she could get a case for his birthday. She said it was “the best wine they had ever had”. This wine will have that effect on people. It wants to age for another six months or so, but if you have to try it right off the bat, decant it for an hour and watch her go. She puts on a show.
