2021 Isabelle Pinot Noir

Since its first Vintage in 1994, Isabelle has been a blend of the best Pinot Noir barrels from all of our vineyard sources to honor Jim Clendenen’s firstborn, Isabelle.  In 2021, we added two new Santa Maria Valley vineyards to the Isabelle blend, North Canyon Vineyard and Rancho Real Vineyard, where we had the pick of the best vineyard blocks.  We love the cool climate of Santa Barbara County, and the 2021 growing season was very cool.  Perfect for our style of wines, lean, lighter color, and pure fruit flavors.  The acidity will help preserve this wine for decades.
