2016 Siduri Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard
Somehow the John Sebastiano Vineyard has moved from one of the newer, high quality vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills Appellation to one of the standard bearers of the region. Odd how that happens with the passage of time. Sitting on the eastern edge of the AVA this vineyard is a bit warmer than other parts of the Sta. Rita Hills, but it is also more affected by the wind than some other parts of the area. That is because it is situated on some incredibly steep slopes that face directly west and directly into the winds that stream in from the Pacific Ocean.
