|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Jeb DunnuckMoving to the two reds, the appellation 2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast reveals a ruby/purple, translucent color as well as a stunning perfume of black raspberries, cassis, crushed violets, spice box, sweet earth. It's rich, medium to full-bodied, has beautiful depth, a kiss of background oak, and a great finish. Mostly destemmed and aged 17 months in 40% new French oak, it's a brilliant wine to drink over the coming decade or more.
Wine SpectatorFeatures a polished texture, with concentrated cherry tart, currant and raspberry flavors that are supported by fresh tannins. The crisp, focused finish reveals forest floor notes, accented by hints of dried sage. Drink now through 2023. 7,550 cases made.
