Accolades

Aromas of cranberry, rose petal, wet gravel and slight tar greet the nose. The palate is earthy in tones of crushed rock, dried thyme and desert sagebrush, which give depth to the fresh cranberry-fruit backdrop – Wine Enthusiast 92 points

A blend of sites and clones, all from Sonoma County, the 2018 Pinot Noir was de-stemmed and brought up in neutral French oak. There were 2,000 cases made. Revealing a medium ruby/translucent purple hue to go with a beautiful nose of spiced strawberries, raspberries, crushed flowers, and violets, it’s beautifully textured and medium-bodied, with good acidity and outstanding length. You’re going to be hard pressed to find a better Sonoma County Pinot Noir at the price, and it’s going to drink brilliantly for 2-4 years – Jeb Dunnuck 92 points

Winemakers Note

Our Pinot Noir grapes are grown near the Pacific Ocean along the Sonoma Coast. Fruit is harvested at night and immediately sorted at the winery. Following a short cold soak, the juice is fermented in stainless steel, open-top tanks. When fermentation is complete, the wine is drained from the tank and the skins are gently pressed. The resulting wine is aged in both neutral barrels and new barrels for 11 months.
