Grape: Pinot Noir
Taste Notes: Raspberry, Spice, Strawberry, Earth
Scar of the Sea was established in 2012by the dynamic duo of Mikey (Scar of the Sea) & Gina Giugni (Lady of the Sunshine). Mikey can be pretty self-critical of his own wines so it speaks volumes when he says that his 2019s are the best wines he’s ever made and the Vino de los Ranchos, his new entry level Pinot Noir is the best wine he made in 2019. This vintage all of the fruit comes from vineyards that are farmed organically. As the name implies, the fruit here comes from two vineyards, Rancho Ontiveros and Rancho Sisquoc. This wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The palate embraces balance and nuance. Raspberry, and spice are the most evident flavors while subtle notes of strawberry and earth float through. Great with turkey or pork.
