Hilliard Bruce Vineyards “Sun” Pinot Noir 2010: With uplifting herbal aromas somewhere between menthol and eucalyptus and a soft, even sexy mouthfeel, this pinot from a one-of-a-kind property in the bucolic hills alongside Highway 246 manages to be rich and prominent with flavors yet not overbearing in approach, an exciting sipper from beginning to end like so many from the Sta. Rita Hills.

Fitting, then, that Hilliard Bruce is home to the educational Saturday portion of the appellation’s annual Wine & Fire celebration, which goes down this weekend.
