THE VINEYARDS: The 2012 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a cuvee from various vineyard sources we feel define the flavor profile of coastal fruit.  The vineyards, with vines ranging in age from 9 years to 24 years, are found throughout the region and grow a spectrum of Pinot Noir clones including both Dijon clones 777, 667 and 115 and older heritage clones of Swan, Pommard and 828.

 

THE WINEMAKING: The goal for our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is to capture coastal flavors in a bottle at a value allowing our loyal customers to consider this their ‘house’ Pinot Noir. The primary processes include cold soaking for 6-8 days in stainless steel followed by fermentation, press and transfer to barrel where it is fermented to dryness.

 

THE WINE: 2012 was a good growing season for the Sonoma Coast region.  Summer temperatures remained cool, rarely rising above 90 degrees, and late season allowed perfect harvest timing.  Our winemaking team was pleased with the fruit and produced a bright and well-balanced wine.  Garnet in color, our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir has a warm, sweet spicy aroma with hints of dried fruit.  On the palate, there dark fruit flavors of plum, dark cherry, and blackberry.  Its beautifully layered aromatics and silky mouth feel encourage another sip.
