2011 Chanin Los Alamos Vineyard Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir ($48, 13.62%): His Chardonnay talents are such that Gavin Chanin’s Pinot Noirs often occupy the background, but his work with this parcel north of the Purisima Hills – well known to Au Bon Climat fans – shows just how much we still have to learn about Santa Barbara’s Pinot geography. It’s a less flourishy style, but full of deep damson plum flavors, plus dark mineral, fenugreek and a zesty Seville orange bite. Pure, intense stuff.
