2010 Seagrape Wine Co. “Jump Up” Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 200 cases, $32. This blend is named after a kind of street party that occurs throughout the Caribbean. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Enticing aromas of dark red berries, spice and leaf, picking up intensity over time in the glass. Elegant on the palate, with a zip of acidity and supple tannins. The flavors of black cherries and red raspberries are complimented by very subtle oak. A spirited drink that exudes finesse, and is highly enjoyable now. Very good. Reviewed July 23, 2012
