Rating: ***- 2003 Lucas & Lewellen Pinot Noir, Hilltop Vineyard, Santa Barbara County, CA


Review: This value-priced pinot noir shows medium red to brick in the glass. Aromas are of stinky feet plus pinot grape, with a touch of berry sweetness. On the palate, the bright acids hit first, followed by a weak middle and slightly acidic finish. I'd try it again someday for the unusual aromas, but only with food because of the high acids.

This wine was sampled as part of our brief expedition cruising Santa Ynez Valley.
