Notes

This alluring Sonoma Coast pinot noir embraces the complexity, structure and elegance, imparted by salty ocean breezes and fog-washed hillsides. Aromas of crushed violet, Chinese tea, ripe raspberry, currant and musk are seamlessly echoed on a silky yet structured palate resplendent with wild berry, fresh cherry, blood orange and a hint of spice. A long, energetic finish turns somewhat nostalgic with the reminiscence of warm, tart cherry pie.
