Aromas of red raspberry, rose petal, tamarind and notes of cedar unfold from this dazzling ruby-hued Pinot. Fresh crushed berries and plum dance across your tongue giving way to a bright finish with notes of black walnut and cherries jubilee.
Wine Maker Notes
Our 2010 Pinot Noir is mostly comprised of two different Sonoma Coast sub-appellations; the Petaluma Gap and Carneros regions. The wind and fog are the Petaluma Gap’s trademark. Fruit from this cool climate addsdepth and complexity to this medium-bodied Pinot Noir while the Carneros influence provides fleshy fruit notes that linger on the palate. These cooler climates help keep the grape acidity at advantageous levels to balance with the wine’s smooth, soft tannins. This is an all aroundcrowd pleasing Pinot Noir.
