This 100% Pinot Noir cuvee is from grapes grown within the cool
microclimate of the Sonoma Coast AVA, on select vineyards in
the western portion of Carneros and the Petaluma Gap. The cool
windy climate and low yield of these vineyards allow Pinot Noir
grapes to mature slowly while retaining their natural acidity, with
bright flavors of red cherries, raspberries and spice. We showcase the elegant side of Pinot Noir by aging in large neutral oak casks and older French oak barrels to keep new oak flavors to a minimum. Lively acidity on the finish makes it an ideal accompaniment to grilled fish and fowl or barbecued meats.
"Medium ruby color; bright, spicy cherry and strawberry
aromas; ripe, bright cherry flavors with spicy notes and nice
acidity; good structure and balance; long finish. Bright, spicy
Pinot that's a delight to drink right now.
"Bright and tangy with juicy acidity and lively cherry fruit; fresh and racy with vibrant flavors."
