2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Winemaker’s Notes:

A deep ruby color introduces a slightly brooding floral nose of forest floor that opens to a sense of coiled strength in the aromas of this youthful Pinot as it opens with air.  Hints of cigar-box and mushroom along with red raspberry and currants become apparent on the palate.  Zesty, forthright and rich mouthfeel predicts and finally gives way to a dark core of cherry and grenadine that is neatly counter-pointed by savory notes of roasted grain and tobacconist-shop spice with an impressive smooth and polished tannic grip that finishes long and round.

The Vintage:

California’s north coast has hit the trifecta with another superb vintage in the last three years.  And another growing season following suit with a perfectly balanced crop to vine vigor ratio.  A mild summer with very little heat spikes the harvest came in during the mild month of September with spectacularly looking fruit.  The beautiful clean fruit taken in during harvest posed no hitches during the fermentation process which has yielded just as beautiful wines.

Winemaker’s Notes:

This elegant and fruit-forward Pinot is both complex and sweetly ripe to the nose, as scents of red cherries, Mr. Lincoln roses and wild black berries join subtle smoky tones, some dried orange peel and hints of powdered sumac in a pretty aromatic display.  The impression of sleek, aristocratic elegance is just as captivating on the palate, where the wines filigree of gentle savory notes melts into a lovely array of red raspberry, wild black berry, cherry and rose petal fruit, finishing with nuances of graphite/lead pencil.
