2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
A combination of lots from our esteemed Petaluma Gap vineyards in the Sonoma Coast AVA including Gap’s Crown and our Sun Chase estate. These coastal mountain vineyards have more fog and wind than other sites resulting in grapes with thicker skins, higher acidity, longer hang time and more intense flavors.
VARIETALS: 100% Pinot Noir
APPELLATION: Sonoma Coast
AGING: 11 months in 100% French oak, 40% new
ALCOHOL: 14.50 %
TASTING NOTES: Velvety smooth, this wine seduces from the get-go, robust in black fruit, tea and delicate offerings of rose petal and lavender. Intensely full bodied, it retains a balance of bright, natural acidity that tames the spicy tannins.
