Highlighting the Sonoma Coast terroir, the grapes are grown in a cool climate, allowing them to ripen over an extended time resulting in rich, concentrated flavors. The fruit was hand harvested in the early morning hours from prominent Pinot Noir vineyards across the Sonoma Coast including Thornton Ranch, DeLoach Estate, Pennacchio, van der Kamp, Sonoma Stage and Starkey vineyards. Made with minimal intrusive winemaking, the wine was aged in French oak barrels.
This rich Pinot Noir opens with red fruit aromas accented by currants and orange zest. Raspberry and cherry flavors continue through to the palate and are complemented by notes of dark chocolate and blackberry. Showcasing bright acidity and a medium-bodied weight, the finish is long and lingering.
