Starry Night Michael Forrest Winery Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this wine come from beautiful vineyards located on the edge of the Carneros wine region. This growing region is influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean and a combination of summer fog, warm days, and a long growing season.

In 2009, Starry Night Winery celebrates its tenth anniversary as a bonded winery! At Starry Night Winery, our goal is to produce the finest wines possible that accentuate the regions from where the grapes are best grown. We currently produce Chardonnay, Syrah and Zinfandels from the Russian River Valley, a Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley, Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley as well as Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Rhone varietals from the Lodi appellation. This year we will be releasing our first vineyard designated Zinfandel from Nervo Station Vineyard in Alexander Valley. The grapes for this wine come from two blocks planted in 1896. In our first year we produced fewer than 1200 cases. Since then we have grown a bit each year and have leveled off our production to about 14,000 cases. Most of our wines are produced in quantities of less than 1,000 cases. By keeping our production small, we are able to pay attention to every detail in the winemaking process and allow the grapes to fully express their terroir. We would describe our winemaking style as minimalist in that we want the wines to make themselves with as little intervention as possible. Read less

Tasting Notes:

The wine is medium dark Garnet in color leading to a highly aromatic nose of bright cherry, strawberry and a hint of oak. The entry is supple on the palate with a lush, full mid palate. The wine is sensual and extremely well balanced with a persistent finish of cherries, strawberries and toast.

The grapes for this wine come from beautiful vineyards located on the edge of the Carneros wine region. This growing region is influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean and a combination of summer fog, warm days, and a long growing season.
