2021 Sonoma Coast
Balanced and elegant with full, bright fruit and complex earth notes that hail from our carefully selected cool Sonoma Coast vineyards.
Vibrant ruby in color, this vintage is bursting with bright red fruit aromas of cranberry and cherry, with hints of bergamot, winter spice and cinnamon. Elegantly layered notes of mulberry, raspberry and a kiss of pine create a harmonious and textured palate accented by a delicate acidity and a subtle salinity, which evocates characteristics of the Sonoma Coast.
92pts, James Suckling
“The 2021 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a huge overachiever. Bright, punchy and super-expressive, the 2021 offers up boisterous red/purplish fruit. Lavender, rose petal, spice and mint are all dialed up in this heady, explosive Pinot. Readers will have a very hard time finding a Pinot with this much quality for the money. All the fruit is estate. I am not sure I have ever tasted a California Pinot this good for $40 a bottle.” -James Suckling
