2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Single Vineyard

The 2017 Pinot Noir comes from a single vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, the Reuling vineyard, planted to Calera and a suitcase clone from Burgundy. Made with 20% whole cluster and aged in 50% new French oak, it has a pale to medium rubypurple color and leaps from the glass with exuberant notions of crushed redcurrants, fresh raspberries and kirsch with nuances of lavender, wild thyme, fragrant earth and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate features amazing texture with very fine-grained skin tannins and a little provocative grip from the stems, structuring the vibrant red fruit layers beautifully, finishing long and earthy. 215 cases produced.
