Aging: 16 months in 38% new French Oak.
Tasting Notes: 100% Pinot Noir. The nose is extremely bright and full of very giving red fruits. On the palate, this is a delightful medium body showing just a touch darker fruit quality with forest floor and baking spices. This is good to go now but could age for another five to ten years.
The 2018 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard is bursting at the seams with energy and intensity. A touch of whole clusters (25%) adds energy to a Pinot that impresses with its explosive power and overall tension. The bright red fruit is extremely primary today. I would cellar the 2018 for a few years to allow more aromatic nuance to develop, but that will be challenging, as it is so compelling right now. ~95 Vinous Media
Moving south to the Sta. Rita Hills, the 2018 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard comes from a mix of clones and was partially destemmed and aged in just under 40% new French oak. It has a pure, medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced style as well as lots of classy darker berry fruits, toasted spices, loamy earth, and sappy herb-like aromas and flavors. It's another balanced, impeccably put together Pinot Noir from this estate ~94 Jeb Dunnuck
