Los Alamos Vineyard ligger på et af de højeste punkter i Santa Barbara County og bader sig både i den californiske sol og køles af klimaet. Samtidig er der både gode mængder kalk og sand i jorden, så Pinot Noir kan dårligt få det bedre end her.

Winemaker Gavin Chanin lod vinen udvikle sig 15 måneder på franske egefade, hvoraf 15% var nye. Ingen filtrering inden den røg over på flaske.

Næsen Her er alle de klassiske toner som Kirsebær, brombær, roser, sort te, roser, lavendler og strejf af kanel i finishen. I munden mødes du af kirsebær sammen med tranebær, blommer, knuste ribs plus mint og krydderier. Det hele bindes så elegant sammen af en fin syre og en lang mineralsk elegance.

Robert Parker 
The 2017 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard has a pale to medium ruby color and classic nose of woodsmoke, cola, cranberry, rhubarb, wild blackberries, oolong tea, dried strawberry and amaro. It's light to medium-bodied, with ripe, spicy fruits, a beautiful silky texture and supporting frame of juicy acidity with grainy tannins and a very long, spicy finish. 447 cases produced.

Vinous
The 2017 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard is a gorgeous wine that is also very expressive of this site. Light, airy and beautifully perfumed, with exquisite finesse to boot, the 2017 is a real winner. The 10-15% whole clusters add aromatic nuance without marking the wine to a significant degree. This is an especially ethereal, but very pretty, wine from Gavin Chanin. Dried cherry, sweet tobacco, mint and dried flowers grace the silky, inviting finish.

Jeb Dunnuck
Slightly lighter colored, the 2017 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard comes from sandy soils and was 80% destemmed and brought up in 10% new French oak. Beautiful rose petal and spring flower notes as well as hints of sweet strawberry and cherry all flow to an ethereal, medium-bodied, silky Pinot Noir that has ultra-fine tannins, perfect balance, and a beautiful finish. It's a fabulous effort that relies more on finesse, elegance, and purity than power and richness.
