The 2017 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir opens with aromatics of cherry preserves, plum and a light hint of forest floor. Ruby in color, expressive on the nose and mouthwatering on the palate, this wine is a stunning food friendly Pinot Noir. The balance of fruit forwardness and acidity play well and creates a lingering finish.The 2017 vintage in the Sonoma Coast AVA was a cool and steady season. The overall cooler temperatures in February and March allowed for budbreak to occur at the typicalmid-March timeline. There was little threat from frost in early spring but some unseasonable rain showers during flowering lead to a bit of shatter across the area creating slightly lower yields. The overall quality and flavor profile of the grapes were fantastic, complex, and extremely promising early on.Destemmed and tank fermented. Close: 2a. Aging: 15 months in 30% New French Oak barrels.
