Notes from the Winemaker:
The wine shows sultry aromas of lavender and crushed rose petals. Flavors are filled with strawberry, raspberry and candied orange. The mouthfeel is generous and the finish is full and balanced with bright, seamless acidity.

Vineyard:
The 2017 Sonoma County Pinot Noir is a selection of rows from our own biodynamically and organically farmed Annadel Gap Vineyard, located in the cool Northern Sonoma Valley, along with the best parcels sourced from Terra de Promissio.

Winemaking:
Each Pinot Noir clone was hand-harvested individually at night. The fruit was hand sorted and fermented individually, separated by clone. 6 days cold soak, gentle punch downs 1-3 times daily, 14-20 days on skins and gently basket pressed. Gravity fed to French oak barrels (58% new). Aged 16 months then bottled unfiltered

Ratings & Reviews


93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma County should represent a terrific value (I wasn’t able to get a price for this release) and it has a classic, balanced style as well as complex notes of black raspberries, spice, and smoky earth. As with everything from this estate, it’s beautifully balanced, with undeniable elegance and a great finish. I suspect it will keep for a decade." - Jeb Dunnuck (6/14/2019)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is a bold, hugely concentrated wine, jammy in up-front notions of black cherry and baked strawberry. With firm silky tannins that add weight and structure, it shows its oak, letting it settle to reveal appealing accents of dried herb and Asian spice." - Virginie Boone (1/1/2020)
