Failla's estate vineyard is dry-farmed and tightly-spaced, conditions that raise a hardy plant that sets concentrated fruit. The 2011 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir presents a melange of exotic aromatics featuring rose petals, berry pie, orange peel, black tea, flint and balsam. A bright expansive palate of gorgeous deep red fruit will pair brilliantly with autumn menus of roasted game birds and caramelized squashes.
