2019 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
Definite sense of class, power and structure - Rich, pungent aromas leap from the glass, cherry-pit, tar, aniseed, herbs, earthy, cherry liquor, marmalade, citrus blossoms, violet, rose petals, combine in layer after layer of richness that keeps coming in waves. Elaborately flavored, this extraordinarily complex wine is a full-bodied wine that is stuffed with currants and raspberries, Bright cherry and cranberry fruit; great clarity of fruit; sweet spice character (allspice, cinnamon, clove);underlying, rich earthiness; jasmine tea; lively acidity; soft tannins; supple texture; long palate evolution. Power, elegance, strength and finesse are ample in this generous wine. This wine is easy to enjoy and will continue to please for many years.
This is our fourth release of Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast Appellation. The region is cooler than MOST of inland Sonoma County, and slows down the maturation of the Pinot Noir into October, even when most Russian River Pinots are picked in September. This additional hang time on the vine develops very refined tannins, flavors, aromas and mouthfeel and creates a pinot that will last for many years. The Pinot Noirs that come from the Sonoma Coast are power houses and this wine will show you why!
Only 260 cases produced. This wine will release for sale on 3-1-2022 in our March wine club selection.
