Using a minimalist approach, it’s amazing how Pali gets the most out of each and every vintage, with slow ripening, cool-climate vineyards that yield beautifully balanced, high-toned wines. The style is very much fresh and zipped up fruit – as opposed to heavy or overripe.
The Pali Santa Barbara/Sonoma Pinot is the most burgundian in the winery’s lineup. Utilizing mainly the fruit from their foggy, coastal Santa Barbara vineyard, they produced a Pinot in 2020 that is highly focused and beautifully made and continues to pick up nuance in the glass. It really is a beauty.
Wine Enthusiast wholeheartedly agreed, giving this modestly priced wine a whopping 93-point Editors’ Choice review that called out, “how distinct sides of the state can contribute to a complex wine”.

This blend of grapes from the winery’s estates in Santa Barbara and Sonoma shows how distinct sides of the state can contribute to a complex wine. Aromas of dark plum, herb and light peppercorn on the nose lead into pomegranate, black raspberry, red rose and lavender flavors on the palate.
