The Sonoma Coast vineyard scene is bucolic, exhilarating, and showcases Pinot Noirs with effortless tannins and racy acidity. The region's indigenous yeast struggle through primary fermentation harnessing a coastal Pinot Noir that boasts fine texture and expressive aromatics similar to those found in Burgundy.
11 months in French oak, 25% new
Deep brooding concentrated color with an exotic nose evocative of coriander, cinnamon, herbes de Provence, and cardamom. On the palate, the spice box mingles with fresh and dry fruit with red fruit undertones. Lush texture that is juxtaposed against crisp, cool climate acidity keeps everything lively and refreshing in the mouthfeel. Flavor characteristics include rhubarb, candied cinnamon, root beer, dark chocolate nuances, and freshly ground espresso.
Ratings & Reviews
"Medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has a bit of rubbery/tarry reduction to begin, opening up to dried rose petal, blackberry, warm red cherry, charcuterie, earth and smoke scents. Medium-bodied, soft and silky, it has a good core of earthy fruit, supported by grainy tannins and great freshness. This is a great value. 325 cases produced." - Erin Brooks (30th Apr 2019)
