As is traditionally the case, our 2007 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is the most structured of our four Pinot Noir releases. The nose reveals an inviting combination of deep berry aromas and spicy, toasty oak notes. On the palate, it is surprisingly supple and soft for a wine with as much aging potential as this possesses. This wine should mature beautifully through 2016. If you plan on drinking it in its youth, we recommend decanting it first.
"Medium-deep ruby color; earthy, forest floor, black cherry aromas; big, deep, black cherry flavors with forest floor notes; nice texture; great structure and balance; long finish. Deep, earthy Pinot with complex layers of flavor. Needs some time in the glass to open up"
"Dark red. Black raspberry, anise and cola on the nose, with a subtle floral quality adding complexity. Deeply concentrated dark berry flavors coat the palate, picking up tangy cherry skin and black tea notes on the back end. More powerful than the RRV bottling, with greater finishing grip and thrust. Decant this or let it rest."
