"Another fruit-loaded, hard-to-resist effort is the 2013 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard, which comes from the cooler Sta. Rita Hills region in Santa Barbara County. Offering up notions of mulled plums, cassis, toasted spice and dried earth, it’s a classic Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir that shows the suppleness and pretty nature of the 2013 vintage. I like it now, but it will drink nicely for at least 4-5 years. - Jeb Dunnuck"
