Listed on Robert Parker’s Best Wineries of the World in both 1989 & 1999, Au Bon Climate (which is owned by renowned winemaker Jim Clendenen) has achieved an almost mythic level of celebrity in the wine world … and rightly so, in our opinion! Food-friendly and age-worthy, the 2019 Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County punches way above its price point with mouth filling intensity and suppleness. Still quite young, it should remain “fresh” for the next 6-7 years, but will become more complex & continue to improve with age.

Fruit is very well balanced between black cherry, blackberry, and cassis. Dark and full-bodied beauty, with a long, slightly peppery finish and just a touch of violets.
