Complex, layered expression of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir with inviting aromas of warm cherry cobbler, butter crust, cinnamon, clove and Mexican chocolate, as well as hints of menthol and fresh leather. On the plate, this wine is smooth and elegant, with creamy tannins supporting abundant layers of sweet, pure fruit. Bright acidity provides an energetic note that supports the rich flavors while adding length and focus to the finish.
The more this spectacular vineyard matures, the more dramatic its wines become. Though somewhat brooding at first, the nose quickly opens up to reveal mesmerizing layers of dark chocolate, damp earth, porcini mushroom, cherry, plum and dried cranberry. On the palate, this mix of savory and sweet elements continues, gaining depth and momentum as the wine reveals itself in evermore-nuanced layers. Gliding to a long, flowing conclusion, the dense tannins and robust structure turn silky and smooth, providing a memorable finish.
