Winemaker Notes

The microclimates of the Sonoma Coast AVA include the western portion of Carneros and the Petaluma Gap. The cool climate and low yield of these vineyards allow Pinot Noir grapes to mature slowly while retaining their natural acidity, resulting in a balanced wine with ripe flavors, silky texture and crisp acidity. Aged primarily in large oak casks and "neutral" older barrels, this wine exhibits flavors of cherries, strawberries and spice, with a lively finish that is an ideal accompaniment to grilled fish and fowl or barbecued meats.

Critical Acclaim

PR 92

Medium-deep ruby color; rich, bright cherry and strawberry aromas with spicy notes; rich, vibrant red cherry flavors with some cinnamon and vanilla and sweet oak notes; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Bright and spicy, this is a great Pinot on its own or with grilled fish or even a roasted chicken.
