About the Wine
There are two goals with Metrick: “First, to make fresh and elegant wines that represent their amazing terroir. Second, to test techniques on how to best craft wines so that they most accurately represent their vineyards.”
Metrick’s owner, Alex is a passionate businessman in the wine industry. He previously owned a very successful Spanish import company, called Alexandre Jules, and he currently writes for various wine magazines. But his main passion is and has always been producing rare unique wines. His ambition is to create high-toned, "mineral" whites and earthier, herbal reds.
He selects grapes from different vineyards in California, mainly in Santa Barbara, where the vineyards usually have marked coastal influence. In the cellar, he uses minimal intervention winemaking, where he lets the grapes speak for themselves, and show all their potential and glory.
2019 Metrick Pinot Noir comes from a very special vineyard called “Rancho la Viña.”This vineyard creates some of the earthier wines of the AVA because of its climate, clay content, and north-facing slope.
Aging: 18 months in French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: 100% Pinot Noir.Beautiful aromas of dark cherry, strawberry, and plum pickup. Fresh and light on its feet, bright fruit and earth.
