Such a gentle creature emerges here from an edgy place to grow grapes. Rather than speaking of a specific site, this is just really nice Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast. With all the many extremely structured and/or broody wines from this highly diverse AVA, it’s almost like a Volnay emerged from the middle of Gevrey, which is a geographical impossibility in Burgundy.
Medium color, silky and with great palate continuity, it is a lovely Pinot Noir that speaks of this coastal area near the sea very happily and clearly. Slightly savory with nuances of cranberry/ gooseberry, it pairs well with the leftover salmon I had the other night and should be wonderful it with Thanksgiving turkey. The pertness and acidity really kill it with these kinds of food.
