Pinot Noir, Sonoma County (2016)

Product Information

This bright, medium-bodied Pinot Noir abounds with aromas of red fruit and warm baking spices followed by flavors of cranberry, fresh raspberry and plum. This expressive wine has a silky texture and a lingering finish.

We source our Pinot Noir fruit from vineyards located in the cooler areas of Sonoma County including Carneros, Russian River Valley and Bennett Valley. These areas experience a marine influence from the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay as cool air, fog and wind rolls in at night during the summer, dropping temperatures substantially. This natural air-conditioning is ideal for Pinot Noir as it allows the grapes to develop deep flavors while retaining natural acidity.
