APPELLATION Sonoma Valley, CA
ANALYSIS 0.53 total acid
13.9% alcohol, by volume
BLEND 97% Pinot Noir
Our winemaker selected grapes from vineyards across California’s best cool climate growing regions. With warm, sunny days moderated by cooling influences, conditions in these areas create an ideal climate for growing Pinot Noir.
The wine was fermented on the skins for five to seven days, followed by a gentle pressing to avoid extracting any harsh tannin from the seeds or skins.
The flavors of this full-bodied wine are ripe and the texture soft, so it gives a feeling of being broad and relaxed on the palate. Aromas recall cola and dark berries, and the flavors resemble stewed cherries.
