2015 Pinot Noir
2015 was a year of exceptionally low Pinot Noir yields all across Sonoma, with small clusters and tiny berries providing impressive color, concentration, structure and tannin to the finished wines. Delicate and tightly wound aromas of dark berry, cola nut, mint, rose petal and fresh earth are refined and captivating. One sip reveals the serious intensity of the vintage, with gorgeous palate presence and tremendous length revealing dark cherry, black raspberry, cola and cloves, and a hint of black licorice completing the ensemble. Immensely satisfying now, this Pinot should also age nicely in your cellar for another 3 to 5 years!

Our 2015 Pinot Noir celebrates the historic Sonoma Carneros region with finishing touches from both Sonoma Mountain and the Russian River Valley adding further structure and signature spice to the finished cuvée.
Fermented 100% in small, open-top stainless steel tanks and punched down three times daily before pressing. Stored in French oak barrels (about 33% new) where the wine aged for 18 months prior to bottling.
