A Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir meaning it is a wine of great aromatics and character. The key word is balance. A balance of oak and fruit, tannin and acid, elegance and intensity.
Part of our elite "Blue Series", Isabelle is comprised of only the best cuvees each vintage. Consequently, it is consistently our top performing Pinot Noir year to year. Dark, rich, and layered, this regal wine is remarkable now, but will be even more integrated and complex in time. Score: 93 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous; 92+ points Robert Parker.
