Lush, alluring and beautifully balanced, this wine displays lovely stone fruit aromas, along with hints of apple and citrus. On the palate, subtle notes of French-oak-inspired vanilla and baking spice complement the generous fruit, with a beam of cool-climate acidity providing poise and finesse.
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.
