Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit was rigorously hand sorted and fully destemmed with no crushing. Moderate cold soaks (4-5 days), warm fermentations (85-90°F), and minimal punchdowns (twice a day or less) were done this year in order to adapt to what nature gave us. Total skin contact ranged from 11-18 days with all fermentations being carefully basket pressed and put to barrel on full fermentation lees for ML. Racking was minimal with only one assemblagebeing done in the spring to allow the blend to "marry" in barrel for a few months before bottling. Mostly native yeast and ML with only small lots conducted using cultured burgundy isolates.

Tasting Notes:

Crushed wild berry, Queen Anne cherry, and cassis dominate the aroma. Notes of vanilla, tobacco, spice and minerals follow the initial and enticing concentrated flavors of blackberry and plum. Finish is smooth and silky with a lingering mouth feel. A quintessential True Sonoma Coast Pinot. Enjoy now or cellar up to 5 years.
