Kasuari Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2007 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is grown and cared for in the heart of Sonoma County. For five generations of the Peters family have made our home, grown the grapes and now are making the wine that embody the richness of the soil and the people of Sonoma County. The Sonoma Coast in particular is known as one of the best Pinot Noir growing regions in the world, and this limited production wine shows why. The vineyard soil consists of Gold-ridge loam in the Sonoma Coast adds rich fruit, spice with a jammy richness via the loamy-clay enriched soils. "Right now this Pinot is a bit heavy and full-bodied, almost like a Rhone-style wine with its thick mouthfeel and cherry, anise and chocolate flavors.  It could easily age, throwing some sediment and becoming softer and more delicate.  Try after 2012." – S.H.

Kasuari has embarked on a mission to make wines of the highest caliber from the greatest and proven California appellations: Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel from Napa Valley and across Sonoma County, Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley and Syrah from Sonoma County. Using an old world approach we feel that flavors begin in the vineyard and that the terrior is specific to each variety. We have chosen each vineyard to yield the highest quality grapes possible. With careful attention in the vineyard, we monitor the grapevine’s balance and crop load to ensure the highest quality. In the winery natural winemaking practices are used in a quest to make artistic, handcrafted wines that reflect our passion to provide the most enjoyable wine drinking experience. Each wine is hand crafted with naturally occurring yeast handling the fermentations. We gently destem all fruit and often put whole clusters in the fermenter! Never fined or filtered these wines represent the vineyard and terrior as it should be at its very best! Our wines are available in very limited quantities and are suitable for any occasion.
