Winemaker Notes
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.
Production
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.
