Pinot Noir
U.S.A. > California > Santa Barbara

This wine clearly illustrates that sometimes there just is “more” to certain wines. More fruit, more silky tannins, and a bit more of an exotic note. With this wine I am trying to emphasize the Sta. Rita Hills character of supple fruit, velvet texture, and salinity. This cuveé is more on the hedonistic side of things from within our cellar while still remaining firmly in our European sense of balance.

93/100 - The 2021 Pinot Noir Küstennebel is a barrel selection from Drum Canyon and Sanford & Benedict. Dark and ample, with exceptional intensity, the 2021 is terrific. Dark red/blue fruits, lavender, rose petal, mint and sage fill out the layers nicely. There's lovely depth and intensity throughout, all rendered by Graham Tatomer with a light hand. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

17.5/20 - Light garnet. Smells of dried flowers, raspberries and dried herbs. Raspberry and redcurrant flavours are silky, and shot through with powdery, athletic tannins that show their muscle as the wine finishes. Notes of dried fennel, dried flowers and herbs linger in the finish with the hint of citrus peel. Excellent acidity. A delicate, ethereal wine. Outstanding. - Alder Yarrow, JancisRobinson.com

95/100 - Californian Pinots can be more akin to Merlot in their weight and extraction, but this one is oh so elegant. its dark colour fooling you into thinking it might be heavy when the breezy floral perfume and bright red cherry are anything but. Sea breeze, crushed pebbles and a bergamot bite deliver great freshness and the tannins are firm but fine. - Tina Gellie, Decanter

95/100With a name that nods to “coastal fog,” this bottling showcases the freshness, stony minerality and herbal intrigue that comes from this ocean-influenced appellation. Aromas of red raspberry, bay leaf, marjoram and concrete on the nose lead into a tense, bright and brilliantly angular expression. Cherry, strawberry, dried herbs and citrus peel all work in harmony on the palate. - Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast

Winery History
Graham Tatomer’s career in wine started back in high school and after he worked the holidays at a local winery all the way through college (in Santa Barbara), he decided that he had found his career path. Drawn to the brightness and acidity of the Germanic varieties (especially Riesling), it wasn’t long before Graham sourced fruit from some old... Read More >>
