Crafted using grapes from the finest Pinot Noir regions on the Sonoma Coast, including the Russian River Valley, Green Valley and Carneros, this alluring wine combines silky sophistication with a bright cool-climate energy. On the palate, soaring flavors of blackberry, red currant, cherry, cedar and sweet baking spices glide to a long, vibrant finish.
On the Sonoma Coast, 2018 was a stellar vintage that started with a cool winter, followed by a relatively temperate summer that allowed for lovely hangtime and a longer growing season. The length of the season ensured that the grapes developed ideal tannins and flavors. While much-needed winter rains helped to spur a generous crop, our rigorous thinning practices resulted in excellent vine balance and wonderful concentration in the grapes. As a result, both our Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays offer compelling weight and texture, with pure flavors and lovely poise and energy.
