The DDLC Estate Pinot Noir is Domaine de la Côte's sole estate wine. Enjoy vibrant, lifted fruit notes and fine tannins. Unlike other single-parcel offerings, this blend delivers a comprehensive taste of the Sta. Rita Hills terroir in one bottle. Simple elegance and a true reflection of the estate's character. 
92/100 - The 2021 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is a punchy, savory wine. Sweet dried cherry, mint, dried herbs, anise and orange peel all grace this understated, classy Pinot. Medium in body and quite gracious, the 2021 is stellar. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 
93/100 - The 2021 Pinot Noir Estate includes some destemmed fruit in an otherwise 100% whole cluster house, making it a touch more approachable than the single-vineyard cuvées. Pale ruby in color, it offers pure pomegranate, blueberries and bitter orange aromas with touches of gravel dust. The light-bodied palate is elegantly structured with powdery tannins and fresh acidity, boasting generous fruits and a long, citrus-tinged finish. - Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate
95/100 - Crumpled bay leaf and dewy peppercorns spice up the dark-plum aromas on the herbal nose of this bottling. The palate is firm and intense, delivering dark fruit and roasted cherry tomato flavors alongside peppery spices and an array of fog-soaked chaparral shrubs. - Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast 
95/100 - A very fine and bright wine with medium body. Linear and very long, vertical and pure. Sliced strawberry and blue fruit. Some iodine, mussels and salt. Umami, too. Drink and enjoy. - James Suckling

TASTING PROFILE:
"Pure, lifted fruit greets your first inhalation toned red currant, cherry, and strawberry. Underneath lie hints of violet and lilac over earthy suggestions of chalk powder and dusty gravel. The story of fruit continues in the mouth, edging toward purple, rather than red, with flavors of pomegranate and hibiscus. Structurally, the wine is stout.
Its first impression begins on the tongue’s tip on middle, leaving a spray of energetic, fine tannins on the roof of the mouth. A pleasing, affable wine now, expect it to soften and broaden even more over the next few years." - Jordan Mackay

"A gorgeous introduction to this range. All of the house signatures are present, but in miniature, as readers might expect. Aromatic and light on its feet, the Sta. Rita Hills has enough energy and drive to drink well for a number of years. The only real issue here is that the other Pinots in the range are even more alluring!"  92 PTS - Antonio Galloni
