Description Build A Case!
RATINGS: 92pts Robert Parker; 91pts Wine Enthusiast

When Fess Parker was cast in the roll of Davy Crockett in the mid 1950's, it caused an international sensation and changed his life forever. So, too, did the purchase of 714 acres in the Santa Ynez Valley change the course of the Parker family's history.

Realizing the potential of Santa Barbara County as a premium grape growing region, Fess and his son, Eli, originally set out in 1989 to plant a small vineyard and sell fruit to local producers. But, as Fess' daughter, Ashley explains, "Fess is from Texas, so he can't do anything small." The Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard now farms almost 700 acres on four vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County.

TASTING NOTES: Wine Advocate 92 points Fess Parker's 2014 Pinot Noir Ashley's Vineyard, which is all from the Rancho Las Hermanas Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills, is a fruit forward, charming beauty that has tons of black raspberry, smoked herbs and underbrush notes in its medium bodied, plump, balanced, yet mouth filling style. Seeing 20% whole clusters and 18 months in 46% new French oak, it's an outstanding Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 4 5 years..Jeb Dunnuck, August/2016

Wine Enthusiast 91 points On the nose, this bottling from one of the family's estate vineyards seems dark with boysenberry and purple flower touches and tangy with hints of plum skin and red currant. The palate is deceptively full bodied but also surprisingly tangy, delivering sour cranberry and eucalyptus flavors..July/2017
