Winemaker Notes

This bottling displays fresh cranberry and raspberry fruit on the nose, marked by sasparilla and a sweet floral note. With some time in glass, darker earth and savory aromas emerge. Smooth, palate-caressing mouthfeel on entry, with supple tannins and juicy pomegranate acids on the late palate. The wine is best at cellar temperature and continues to unfurl with aeration.

Critical Acclaim

D 90
Decanter
Earthy mushroom and toast on the nose, with the palate more savoury and spicy than fruity and lush. Yet the tart raspberry/cherry character is evident, enveloped in caressing tannins.

The Sonoma Coast AVA is large in area but, not counting overlapping regions like Russian River Valley, only has a few thousand acres of grapevines—and it’s no wonder. Much of the region is rugged and not easily accessible. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean’s fog and cool breezes limits the varieties that can be cultivated, but it proves to be an ideal environment for high quality Pinot Noir.

Since fog is a frequent fact of life here, as are heavy marine layers that sometimes bring rain, the best vineyards are wisely planted above the fog line, on picturesque ridges that capture enough sun to provide even ripening. That, with the overnight drop in temperature that reliably preserves acidity, results in fine expressions of Pinot Noir that often receive tremendous critic and consumer praise alike, and are often in high demand.
