Pale gold in color with aromas of flakey French pastries, dried apricot and under-ripe orange. A lingering chalk-like minerality lifts from the glass. The palate expresses peach and Valencia oranges. A complex and nuanced wine with an elegant fruit finish. No dosage was added to this wine due to its natural round fruit qualities.
The beautiful dark garnet color lures you in to enjoy the nose with hints of caramelized bacon, candied cherry, dark plum and chocolate. Lingering fruit on the mid-palate and supple tannins create a full bodied and voluptuous mouth feel. This is Kate's favorite Pinot Noir in the portfolio.
New Flying Goat Logo and Label
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Flying Goat Cellars in 2020, we had our Flying Goat Cellars logo and wine label redesigned by Michelle Ball. Ball integrated our iconic goat into the new design and we are thrilled with the fresh look.
We are excited to announce the release of our first wine with the new label, 2019 Pinot Noir Nielson Vineyard. This is also our first vintage of Pinot Noir made from the Swan clone and sourced from the oldest commercial vineyard in Santa Barbara County. Read more on the Nielson Vineyard.
Flying Goat Cellars wine labels will carry the original label through the 2018 vintage of Pinot Noirs and 2019 vintage of Pinot Gris. Our YNOT label, designed by Lompoc native Ricardo de los Angeles, was also refreshed by Michelle Ball in 2020. Look for the label on the 2018 YNOT Chardonnay. Read more on the history of our original labels here.
