A blend of Merlot, Valdiguie, Tempernillo, and Syrah. "GEN RED" is a blend of grapes from several vineyards along the Central Coast. This vintage is mostly Valdiguie that adds a little spiciness however this wine is utterly reliable and ends with a lovely burst of rich black fruit.

Hitching Post is run by Frank Ostini, whose family ran the original Hitching Post from 1952, and Gray Hartley, a former commercial fisherman. Back when they started in 1979, they had but one barrel produced in their garage. Later on they made the wines at the Au Bon Climat/Qupe winery, and now the wines are produced in Buellton just around the corner from the Hitching Post restaurant (yes, the one in 'Sideways'). At the heart of Hitching Post is a focus on Pinot Noir from vineyards in Santa Barbara County, specifically Santa Maria Valley, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Rita Hills and Los Alomos. These are traditional wines, aged in French Oak, bottled unfiltered, redolent in vibrant fruit with an intense vein of spice and earthiness but always with balancing fresh acidity.

Great wine!

Have had this years ago in California, and it's as good as I remember. Not a connaisseur by any stretch, so unable to comment on body, ect, but I can confirm it's deliciousness.
