2017 Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, WestLands
The WestLands Pinot Noir is our nod to capturing the essence of the west Sonoma Coast. It is barrel-selected from our favorite vineyards west of Sebastopol. All the vineyards used for this wine are in close proximity to each other and are within ten miles of the Pacific Ocean. The 2017 vintage was an excellent one— well-balanced with moderate yields due to a heat spike later in the season. We were very fortunate to have picked all of our fruit prior to the October 2017 North Bay Fires, so the widespread devastation did not affect our wines.
Inviting aromas of mulled spices, leather and blackberry on the nose. Cherry and strawberry notes dance on a lively palate. Ending in a long, luscious finish, this wine pairs exceptionally well with food.
