Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

Pale gold. Pear nectar, tangerine and a suggestion of honey on the nose and in the mouth. Supple, gently sweet and open-knit, showing good depth and a refreshing touch of spiciness on the back half. Closes on a poached pear note, with good, spicy persistence.

RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 4th Feb 2021
The 2017 Pinot Noir Estate offers savory, layred aromas of earth and laurel, charcuterie and orange peel, with amaro-laced red and black berries. The palate is grainy and fresh, with a kaleidoscope of spices and a very long finish. It’s incredibly appealing now but will benefit from a long decant. 963 cases produced.
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2020
The 2017 Pinot Noir is a very pretty, open-knit wine. Crushed rose petal, sweet red berry, mint, cedar and sweet pipe tobacco give the 2017 striking aromatic presence. In 2017, the Mount Eden Pinot is a decidedly forward, silky wine that looks like it will offer its best drinking sooner rather than later. The 2017 was done with 33% whole clusters and saw 50% new barrels.
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/1/2020
There’s intense pine and redwood spice to the nose and palate of this bottling, which begins with aromas of cooked cranberry, vanilla and nutmeg. There’s a splash of acid on the tip of the sip, where smoked strawberry and grilled berry flavors meet with oregano and singed oak smoke.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2020
Notes of cedar and wild spice accent the ripe, well-knit red berry, boysenberry and dark plum flavors. Coffeeberry accents chime in on the broad and juicy finish. Drink now through 2024. 999 cases made. (Kim Marcus)

Seabiscuit by Paul Lato | Zotovich Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017 / 750 ml.

Zotovich Vineyard Pinot Noir
2017 / 750 ml.

Item #: 93019

RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 12th Sep 2019
The 2017 Pinot Noir Seabiscuit Zotovich Vineyard comes from 17-year-old vines planted in diatomaceous earth and sandy loam, and the wine aged for 17 months in 60% new French oak. It’s medium ruby-purple in the glass and gives up wonderfully pure aromas of blueberries, spiced cranberry sauce, rhubarb, red cherry, raspberry and strawberry preserves, black cherries, peppered charcuterie, woodsmoke, dried rose petal and orange peel. Light to medium-bodied, it explodes in the mouth with flavor layers supported by firm, finely grained tannins and juicy freshness and finishes long, spicy and energetic. A powerful but elegant expression. 300 cases were made.
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2019
The 2017 Pinot Noir Seabiscuit is laced with crushed red berry, rose petal, mint and sweet spice. Airy and light on its feet, with tremendous perfume, the Seabiscuit is the most delicate and gracious wine in the range. The 2017 offers a super appealing mix of brightness and energy. Best of all, it will drink well upon release.
