Raspberry, brown sugar, vanilla, silk, and elegance are a few words that were meant for this Pinot. The nuances of this wine are subtle but distinguishable. This is a wine where subjective adjectives really do apply, and make sense. It has great balance, floral scents, and a smooth mouth feel that doesn’t jab or pucker. my blog: http://corksandcaftans.wordpress.com/category/corks/

Winemaker's Notes:

Costiera, meaning “coastal,” represents our quest to find the finest vineyard lots on the Sonoma Coast. This Pinot Noir is blended from five such vineyards from two iconic winegrowing families. From the Martinelli family, the famed Bondi and Nuptial vineyards are blended with the Dutton family’s sought-after Widdoes, Manzana and Thomas Road vineyards. While these vineyards are planted to low-vigor rootstalks, meticulous farming ensures vine balance and keeps yields at or below 1.5 to 2 tons per acre.

Tasting Notes:

Exhibiting trademark qualities highly sought in Pinot Noir, Costiera has the telltale aromas of dark cherries mingled with an earthy complexity, which, at this writing is showing under the guise of fresh mushrooms and fresh vineyard soil. A silky entry leads to mouth-filling flavors of ripe cherry compote or cherry butter. The texture in the mid-palate could be visualized as a cat’s eye marble with the acidity, tannins and fruit/savory flavors ever-present and seamlessly intertwined.
