The 2019 growing season was rewarding across Sonoma County. January through March brought very welcomed, ample rains intermixed with well-timed sunny days. Warm summer days and cool nights allowed for even ripening, which rewarded us with truly outstanding, balanced and flavorful fruit.
Gorgeous red fruit aromas of pomegranate, cherry and cranberry coalesce with herbal scents of sage and pipe tobacco, reminiscent of a briar patch. Plush and soft on entry, gaining energy and structure with fine, mouth-coating tannins on the mid-palate. The flavors of pomegranate, cola, orange peel and herbs are long and layered. Lovely to enjoy now, the 2019 Sebella Pinot Noir will gain in polish and complexity with mid-term cellaring.

“Having spent nine months in new French oak, this wine offers a mix of bright acidity and crunchy red fruit. It uncovers white pepper, lavender and forest floor accents as it develops, yielding a wine that shows tremendous value for the quality.”
“Concentrated notes of hot stone to the savory dried red fruit and berry flavors. Hints of balsam in the midpalate, with a fresh finish.”
