2017 ExS Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
Showing rich, ruby-red in the glass with aromas of ripe cherry, floral Darjeeling Tea, and hints of briny olive. These notes carry through to the palate entering with ripe, Bing cherry and raspberry flavors before moving on to hints of citrus and earthy undertones. A slow and steady growing season at our Sonoma Coast vineyard allowed ample time for flavor development which shows through in the layered, darker blue fruit notes apparent in this wine. This Pinot Noir is approachable upon release but has enough structure for extended cellaring and will soften beautifully with age.
