We craft our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir by sourcing from mature hillside vineyard lots that lend to a rich, voluptuous core. Aromas of dark cherry, and red stone fruit are reflected on the palate, further complemented by fine tannins. French oak reveal subtle spice notes that lead to a long finish.
The Sonoma Coast appellation, spanning the Northern California coastline, is renowned for its marine influence and Burgundian-style terroir. Mild days and cooling breezes from the Pacific Coast offer ideal growing conditions for elegant Pinot Noir wines. Sourced from mature hillside vineyard lots that lend to a rich, voluptuous core.
The grapes for this Pinot Noir were hand picked in October. After destemming, the grapes were whole-berry fermented in open-top fermenters, which were punched down manually to provide maximum flavor and minimum harsh tannins. Following fermentation, the wine was transferred to a mix of new and matured small French oak barrels for eight months. Prior to bottling, the wine received minimal filtration and fining to preserve the fresh berry flavors.
Enjoy with lamb chops, duck, risotto, roast chicken or grilled salmon.
