Au Bon Climat has been making Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County grapes since 1982, 23 years before the movie Sideways. Strawberries and blackberries aromas slowly rise out of the glass. Over time, more of the anise and clove will mix with these other aromas. Currently, the wine is young with mouth filling intensity and suppleness. Complexity will increase as the wine ages, but this wine should stay fresh for 6 or 7 years. Like all Au Bon Climat wines, this is a food wine. In its youth, match this wine with lamb or dried meats. After a few years, as the flavours coalesce, it will pair better with salmon or mild red sauce with pasta.
