(From 2012 Vintage) Exhibits dark black and blue fruits that drive down the center of the palate and slowly melt into all areas of the mouth. There is focused acidity and a tannic grip that carries the rich dark fruit character towards the midpalate, followed by creamy black cherry, dark plum and dried currants. There is intensity to this wine that is followed by a slow release of complex flavors and textures, leading to a long and lingering finish.
Our Most vibrant Pinot Noir, the 2001 Sonoma Coast is reminiscent of the wines Of Burgundy. Aromas of cherry, violets And orange peel fill the nose. Focused Acidity frames the elegant structure of Cherry and strawberry with hints of coffee. The silky mouth-feel leads to a finish of Bright fruit and supple tannins.
