2014 Pinot Noir "Slice of Heaven"
Slice Of Heaven is Block 14 at Rita's Crown, which is the most centrally located vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills. And so it should come as no surprise that its wines always take on so many of our appellation's characteristics. This 2014 bottling displays lavish amounts of earthy forest floor, leather, and smoky cherry cola. On the palate, its youthful construction is tight with an acidity that gracefully levitates the flavors in the finish over very fine tannins. Give it a few years and the whole thing will turn into velvet. Just another year with Slice Of Heaven being its usual ethereal self.
