Real Pinot Please Stand Up

Just tasted the 2006 Alma Rosa, Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir.  Thank you Thekla and Richard for coming back to winemaking (former owners of Sanford winery but since sold to a big corporation) and for making such a great wine that is true to the grape.  I for one am exhausted by so many Pinot Noirs I taste which are juiced up on Syrah, Cab and who knows what else.  This actually shows elegance and refinement, smokey ham (Craig nailed that one) with cherries and strawberry.  
And one more thing interesting note. The bottle from Alma Rosa can no longer carry the appellation "Santa Rita Hills" because the Santa Rita winery in Chile threatened all the Santa Rita Hills winemakers with legal action for using their name!  So now all the Santa Rita California producers have to abbreviate their appellation to "Sta." so as not to be confused with Santa Rita winery in Chile's great wines [insert sarcasm here]. -Salamanzar
