I fell in love with the Paul Lato Solomon Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir that we drank during lunch. I had never had Paul’s wines and they were incredible!
Another delicious Pinot Noir from Sta. Rita Hills by Brewer ~ Clifton. These guys are great and they’re on my Lompoc Top 10 Wine Tasting Rooms post, read more here.

This is the line up of Pinot Noirs we tasted led by each winemaker. The Gap’s Crown Vineyard were my favorites. Such interesting aromatics, flavors, and very complex.
Cheers to the amazing winemakers, moderators, and hosts of this event. What a perfect way to kick off the 2017 World of Pinot Noir Event. Thanks to the World of Pinot Noir and The Kosta Browne team for hosting me as media to this amazing kick off lunch. It was incredible!!
