2019 Sonoma Coast
Pinot Noir Magnum

Balanced and elegant with full, bright fruit and complex earth notes that hail from our carefully selected cool Sonoma Coast vineyards.

Ultra-bright garnet color and aromas of fragrant strawberry, muddled raspberries, and a kiss of baking spice. Dark cherry and rhubarb are balanced with pomegranate seeds a touch of floral notes on the palate, with a subtle salinity that hearkens to its sourcing along the Sonoma Coast. Seamlessly integrated tannins and fresh acidity give the wine a distinct freshness throughout.

2019 ACCOLADES

94pts, Robert Parker 
“The 2019 Pinot Noir has a medium ruby-purple color and lush scents of dried blueberries and cranberries, with nuances of blood orange, forest floor and violet. The medium-bodied palate has grainy tannins and rounded acidity to support its layered fruits, and it finishes long and flavorful.” -Erin Brooks

Sonoma Coast

The vineyards along the Sonoma Coast feature marine influences that define this sweeping appellation, an area that stretches from the beautiful San Pablo Bay all the way to the Mendocino County line.

The Sonoma Coast American Viticulture Area (AVA) covers over 480,000 acres, with roughly 7,000 acres planted with vines.  Temperatures are moderate, with evenings dipping to 40s as a result of the fog off Bodega Bay and day time highs typically in the low 70s.  Growing grapes in the dramatically cool western reaches of Sonoma County is complex and demanding, with the end result truly worth the risk. The resulting fruit produces wines that are elegant and intensely structured.
