Kita Pinot Noir 2014
Kitá is a wine project lead by Chumash winemaker, Tara Gomez, working out of the Santa Ynez Valley. The Chumash supported Gomez throughout her career, granting her a scholarship to study enology at Cal State and later, purchasing the Camp 4 vineyard and immediately hired her on as head winemaker! Sourced from the esteemed Hilliard Bruce vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills, this Pinot Noir was aged in 80% new oak and 20% neutral French oak for 18 months. With deep aromas and flavours of black cherry cola, cranberry, rose, toasted vanilla bean and wet stone. A soft velvety texture highlights characters of earth, violets and pomegranates. The cool growing region and marine influence allow the elegance of this wine to shine!
