2018 Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
Enticing aromas of black cherry and orange peel create a richness on the nose, and a palate that boasts of strawberry, crushed raspberries and Bing cherry. Structured and vibrant, this wine lingers in the best way.
Our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is sourced from a handful of exceptional vineyards each year in the revered Sonoma Coast AVA, from which our winemaker Katy Wilson expertly blends select lots and clones. It is a stunner year after year and always a beautiful expression of the Sonoma Coast. The 2018 vintage was slow and steady, which allowed the fruit to gradually ripen, holding its acid and allowing it to develop complexity on the vine. The majority of fruit was picked between mid-September and mid-October, with generous yet balanced yields.
