Santa Barbara Wine Company Pinot Noir 2008, Santa Barbara, CA - $11/glass, $20/bottle

This Santa Barbara Pinot Noir 2008 is a single-vineyard wine from the North Canyon Vineyard. We purchased it by the glass at Crú in the Domain for $11/glass, although it retails online for approximately $19/bottle.

Aroma - red cherries, bright spice
Taste - red cherries, bright spice, no tannins, fruity but dry, nice long finish

The wine paired nicely with the house salad (arugula, walnuts, cheese) and the steamed mussels. Yum!
