Product Description

Black cherry, cranberry, cola and pomegranate aromas. Long and full on the palate with bright plum and rhubarb notes and a refreshingly zesty finish.

VINEYARD

We took our years of Pinot Noir experience and went westward to the Sonoma Coast. Like our Carneros Pinot Noir, we have made our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir exclusivley from fruit that is sourced for our single-vineyard wines. These vineyards highlight Pinot Noir at its best from the Sonoma Coast AVA: showcasing cooler sites with lower yields, resulting in amazing concentration and vibrancy.

Appellation: Sonoma Coast

Clones: 52% Pommard, 19% Dijon 928, 16% Dijon 115, 7% Calera, 6% Dijon 23

Terroir: Goldridge soil series which is well-drained and highly erodible. Poor nutrients in the soil force the vines to struggle, delivering dense fruit clusters. Overall climate is cool, foggy and sometimes windy, yet with enough sunshine to produce fruit with intense color and flavor.

Harvest Dates: August 30, September 9, September 14, September 26

WINEMAKING

After night harvesting, the fruit arrives before sunrise at Saintsbury. Each block remains separate and receives gentle handling starting at the sorting table through to the open top fermenters for 5-day cold soak for a total of 13 days cuvaison.

Aging: 10 months in 20% new, 30% 1-year old, and 50% neitral French oak barrels
