Pinot Noir
Sonoma County, 2013

$ 52.00

Pinot Noir from Sonoma County varies in its expression according to where it is grown. This wine exhibits the sassafras character of coastal Pinot Noirs, as well as the cola of those from the area between Sebastopol and Santa Rosa. Moderately structured, it has a central core of red fruits and lightly toasty oak that anchor these coastal and inland elements. It should be at its best two to six years after the vintage.

Winemaker's Notes

Our ‘entry-level’ Pinot bottling labeled simply by a political designation rather than an AVA, this has red cherry, roses and cranberry on the nose.  The tiny hint of fresh loam anchors the non-fruit minority political party at the wineglass convention.  The refreshing cranberry/cherry thing continues on the flavors by mouth, giving way to the mouth-watering finish elicited by the appropriate acidity and mild tannin lobbyists.  This gets my nomination as one of the best Pinot Noir values out there.

    Delightfully elegant and refined, with an emphasis on subtlety and finesse, offering spicy cherry and raspberry flavors that linger and entice. 90 Points. Jim Laube
