Mission Briefing

Codename:

Thirsty like the Wolff

Rarely does a Pinot Noir cross our palates this good. First brought to the wine world’s attention by Mount Eden, Wolff is one of the oldest vineyards in Edna Valley, sharing this lesser-known but highly prized appellation’s consistently outstanding fruit with visionaries such as Alban and Talley. Last year we were delighted by how well Summerland wines can overdeliver, but in all honesty, were not expecting a Pinot THIS tasty. We grabbed all we could out of their library, leaving nothing behind. You reap the benefit today.

Exhibits a dense plum / purple color with a gentle fading to the broad rim glowing a subtle garnet. Out of this world perfume, with wild raspberries, dried mushrooms, subtle wood spice, and game on the redolent nose. Layers of juicy plums and boysenberry unfold on the palate with freshly cut flowers and stunning overall balance. Sweet kirsch and black currant linger on the long finish with confidence adding delineation and vibrancy to the finale. Try this stunner with ossobuco, served over a rich risotto with dried porcinis and liberal shavings of Parmigiano.

With massive savings exceeding HALF OFF bringing it to a crazy low $25, this will be one of the best Pinot Noir values we’ll see this year, guaranteed. It would not be an exaggeration to call Nebil “Bilo” Zarif the unofficial “wine mayor of Santa Barbara”, where his pride and joy Summerland remains a hugely popular winery since 2002, cherished by locals and elite wine lovers, particularly in the glamorous realms of Beverly Hills and Hollywood. Bilo and his Old World trained winemaker Etienne Terlinden are true pioneers in sourcing from some of the Central Coast’s great hidden vineyards.

Here’s what the wine press has to say on Summerland:

Robert Parker – Wine Advocate - “Elegant wines that display impeccable winemaking and a successful attempt to produce wines of good balance and charming personalities.”
