Royal Prince, Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara County 2014
Winemaker David Green has been lucky enough to work with the likes of icons David Ramey and Philippe Melka, but he doesn't fear the trap of what good fortune he may have in front of him. Royal Prince is Green's first release; a stunning Pinot Noir from the Santa Maria Valley in Santa Barbara. This area produces some of the most nuanced and refined Pinot Noir in all of California. The vineyards David sourced his fruit from are known for cold, fog-filled mornings that lend to the savory character of the fruit. Royal Prince (as the name suggests) shows balance, pedigree and extreme poise. Once the bottle is open, aromas of dried cherries, Dijon mustard and baking spices will fill your nose. The wine is garnet in color, viscous and supple, and finishes with flavors of pomegranate and black cherry. Royal Prince will be your crowning achievement should you be lucky enough to get some. So, get some! 13.7% alc.
