2005 Santa Barbara Winery Pinot Noir, Santa Rita Hills ($22)

WINE FIND

March 28, 2007|By Michael Dresser

Pinot noir is among the most versatile red wines in terms of food pairings. This one from California's Central Coast is exceptionally well-balanced and nuanced - with a style very true to the varietal's Burgundian roots. It offers bright cherry fruit, hints of raspberry, spices and wet earth and a long finish. Serve with duck, pork, roast chicken or turkey.
