Situated at the top of Kings Ridge Road along the Sonoma Coast, the Pinot Noir Vineyard overlooks the Pacific ocean and basks in ample sun and fog at a 2000 feet elevation. The coastal fog keeps it cool in the mornings, but the ridge exposure allows for ample ripening. Strawberry preserve, anise, and spicy notes leap out of the glass. While fresh red fruit and hints of cherry are enveloped by subtle warm toasty oak nuances. The firm acidity and smooth tannin profile are perfectly balanced. Only 8 barrels.
The 2016 harvest gave us fruit of exceptional quality for our California Pinot Noir. The growing season began early, with ideal temperatures that developed fruit with excellent concentration and delicious complexity. This 2016 Pinot Noir shows beautifully with balanced acidity and elegant, wild berry flavors.
Aromas: Aromas of wild raspberry, rose petal and a touch of cloves.
Flavours: Lush flavors of cranberry, raspberry and dark, wild berries.
The blended result is a wine bursting with intense currant and Bing cherry flavors, with ideal tannin structure for extended aging. The lots are hand-selected and aged for a minimum of 24 months in French oak. Less than 200 cases was produced and each bottle is numbered as it’s filled and labeled. This is a luscious, full-bodied wine that is perfect for extended aging, but ready to drink upon release.
