This latest Zotovich “Seabiscuit” bottling is by far one of Paul’s best efforts to date! I would say that it will rival his 97 Point rated 2017 & 18 versions! As is the case with all of Paul’s wines, I get limited amounts of this great gem, so I can only remind you how great and limited they are! This wine is very much an image of the great 2017 & 2018 vintages!
Paul Lato Notes: “With a cool climate crispness at its foundation, Seabiscuit unfurls lovely flavors of fresh cranberries, pomegranate, and rose petal. Showcasing the vineyard’s sandy soils, it is fresh and lively on the palate, with a bright core of wild thyme and sage and a long, snappy finish. Pristine and structured, the versatility of this wine makes it a perfect match with food.”
Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: “The 2019 Pinot Noir Seabiscuit Zotovich Vineyard comes from the Sta. Rita Hills and was brought up in 65% new French oak. It shows the spicy, savory, salty style of the appellation, yet all with restraint, and it’s the purity of fruit that leads, with gorgeous ripe raspberries, cherries, and mulberries all front and center. More medium-bodied, elegant, and impeccably balanced, it’s already impossible to resist yet has a good 7-8 years of prime drinking ahead of it.”
