|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|

Eighteen small, independent family-owned vineyard sites come together in this gorgeous display of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. This is an approachable Pinot Noir showing alluring freshness and purity. The nose displays intense aromas of Bing cherry, strawberry, dried rose petal and licorice notes. Nicely dense and full on the palate, the fresh acidity and bright red fruit flavors resolve on a juicy, detailed finish. This 2018 offering has the essential elegance, purity and complexity that defines great Pinot Noir.
This is a great representation of coastal intensity and freshness, built around a spicy, full-bodied core of dark-berry fruit, crushed rock and dried herb. Forest and tea accents underscore its wild appeal and provenance.
