  Fruity and rich, with notes of chocolate nibs to the elegant dark fruit and spice flavors. Toasty details linger on the long finish, which features sandalwood accents. Drink now through 2023. (KM)   (4/2019)

K&L Notes

Jeb Dunnuck writes the following about Sea Smoke: "...when the region is chasing Burgundian-like ripeness and acid profiles, they continue to show it is possible to make rich, full-bodied and concentrated Pinot Noirs from the Sta. Rita Hills that are a joy to drink."

Each year, our goal for Southing is to create the ideal marriage of complexity and elegance. The ever-changing nose of the 2016 Southing exhibits boysenberry, dried cherry, savory spices and fresh plum. The fine tannins and minerality are enhanced by our estate vineyard’s characteristic cool climate acidity.

The salty, tangy notes of an aged goat cheddar bring out the sweet fruit in the wine, as does a savory smoky glazed ham, or mushroom bruschetta.
