93 POINTS – WINE ENTHUSIAST – “This county cuvée by veteran vintner Adam Lee checks a lot of boxes for rich Pinot Noir for a fair price. Black cherry, star anise and warm cardamom aromas meet with a dark earth tone on the nose. The palate is fuller bodied with bold fruit and spice flavors and an impressive tannic frame.”

92-90 POINTS – JEB DUNNUCK – “Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2022 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County reveals a translucent ruby hue as well as beautiful and up-front aromatics of raspberries, ripe strawberries, spring flowers, and baking spices. It’s medium-bodied, has a round, elegant texture, and a fruit-forward, undeniably delicious style that’s already hard to resist. It’s going to be a smoking value.”


The Dial Tone grapes are hand-picked and transported to the winery where they are destemmed and placed in tank. A small amount of sulfur is added at the destemmer, along with an enzyme which helps break down the grape allowing us to extract all their flavors. After a five-day cold soak, the grapes are inoculated with yeast. Upon the conclusion of fermentation, we add malolactic bacteria to help the wine go through malolactic fermentation. Once that process is finished, sulfur is added to protect the wine and it is transferred to neutral French oak barrels for aging. In the Spring, we blend the barrels for the wine. We filter the wine before bottling.
