2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Single Vineyard

Coming from the Rueling Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast offers a more nuanced, complex style with pretty mulled red and black fruits, lots of pine and foresty notes, medium-bodied richness, flawless balance, and a great finish. It just begs to be drunk today yet should easily evolve for 7-8 years on its balance and nicely integrated structure.

Tasting Notes

The 2018 Pinot Noir was crafted using 20% whole cluster fermentation and is a wonderful expression of the exceptional environment of the Petaluma Gap area. Medium purple in color, a lovely combination of cherry and floral aromas awaits you. It’s medium to full-bodied palate explodes with red fruits…beautifully balanced with a lush texture and finely grained tannins, it has a delightful long finish.
