Showing the more savory, dried earth and sandy loam-like characteristics that are the hallmark of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA is the 2014 Pinot Noir Seabiscuit Zotovich Vineyard (aged 15 months in 70% new French oak). It has lots of bright cherry, forest floor, spice and dried flowers to go with a supple, gorgeously polished style on the palate. It still has a kiss of new oak, so give it a year in bottle.
