Pinot Noir. Single Clone #115.Located next to Los Alamos Vineyard, Rancho La Cuna is an bucolic oasis of olive trees, heritage gardens and a five acre vineyard planted to Pinot Noir, Viognier, and Syrah that Jim Clendenen owns. Production is low and the wines produced seldom reach the shelves before they are gone. This is a beautiful, well stated Pinot of elegance and balance.
According to noted wine critic Antonio Galloni, "An arrestingly beautiful wine that will stop readers dead in their tracks. Rich and powerful on the palate, yet with tremendous tension, the 2016 has it all. I especially admire the wine's delineation and overall pedigree. What a gorgeous wine this is."

A wine of charm and balance. Delicate fruit notes of apple, licorice and melon effortlessly intertwine with a gentle toasty character. The 24 months aging in new Francois Frere oak barrels makes an obvious, but not overpowering statement.
A deep, full flavored Cabernet with berry and spice notes. Vita Nova is a label we use for Bordeaux varietals. There are microclimates within vineyards in Santa Barbara County that have the right conditions to create rich but supple Cabernets of density, character, and are fruit forward.
