(From 2013 Vintage) Sweet spice, ripe cherry, dark chocolate, and coffee in the nose. Plum and tobacco flavors with subtle layers of toasty oak. Richly textured with soft tannins and a spicy finish.
The 1999 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir has lush aromas of plum, raspberry and black cherry with notes of anise and clove framed by toasty oak. The flavors range from bright plum, black cherry and chocolate to vanilla and toast imparted by French oak barrel aging. This wine has silky mature tannins that make it enjoyable now but will also gain complexity with additional bottle age.
