A brilliant ruby shade and lively aromas of red cherry, perfumed violet, and flaky pie crust, reveal this wine’s Sonoma Coast origins from the outset. A full palate of round, sumptuous fruit, along with flavors of earl grey tea and red clay, interact with its finely grained tannins. Balanced and elegant, the wine is playful throughout the long, energetic finish.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby, yet luminous in the glass, this 2015 Pinot Noir embodies the fog-drenched early mornings and sun-soaked afternoons of its Anderson Valley origins. Wafting aromas of freshly baked tart cherry pie are juxtaposed by, rusted iron, and damp earth. On the palate, mouthwatering briar fruit, wild blueberry, and fresh sage are delivered through a full, velvet-textured mouthfeel, and tethered by fine grain tannins throughout the lengthy finish.
