2017 Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
Our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir consistently delivers and is a flagship wine in our portfolio. It is sourced from exceptional vineyards each year in the revered Sonoma Coast AVA. In 2017, our winemaking duo of Katy Wilson and Ross Cobb expertly blended select lots and clones from five respected vineyards. It is a stunner year after year and always a beautiful expression of the Sonoma Coast. 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 this wine.
Complex yet inviting notes of black tea, Santa Rosa plum and wild blackberries meet the nose. Muddled cranberries, dried fruit and vanilla grace a medium-textured palate. With lingering tannins on the finish, this wine, as always, is truly age-worthy.
