This 100% Pinot Noir cuvee is from grapes grown within the cool microclimate of the Sonoma Coast AVA, on select vineyards in the western portion of Carneros and the Petaluma Gap. The cool windy climate and low yield of these vineyards allow Pinot Noir grapes to mature slowly while retaining their natural acidity, with bright flavors of red cherries, raspberries and spice. We showcase the elegant side of Pinot Noir by aging in large neutral oak casks and older French oak barrels to keep new oak flavors to a minimum. Lively acidity on the finish makes it an ideal accompaniment to grilled fish and fowl or barbecued meats.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine overdelivers in terms of flavor and overall quality versus price. It offers vibrant Bing cherry aromas around a coy, lightweight and restrained sense of self, with a supple body and bright acidity. Sourced from several vineyards, oaky tones provide subtle structure without masking the fruit.
