2017 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (1 X 750 ML)
Horseshoe Bend Vineyard sits at the summit of the ridgeline above the town of Occidental. At 1,000 feet, its situated above the fog bank of the Russian River, and gathers enough warmth to ripen the Pinot clusters. Nobles Vineyard produces Pinot Noir with vibrant red berry flavors and a supple, layered texture. The vineyards are on the eastern slopes of the second mountain ridge in from the Pacific Ocean, between 950 and 1,050 feet above sea level. Piedra Libre Vineyards is surrounded by the forests of the rolling hills between Sebastopol and Bodega Bay. Located between 250 and 500 feet above sea level, the vineyards are planted in Goldridge sandy loam soil, a fine grain soil with little fertility, which gives the grower full control of nutrients and minerals provided to the vine.
This Pinot Noir engages with aromas of cherry, rhubarb, raspberry and baking spice. The richly textured midpalate features a juicy center of blueberry and black plum, accentuated with good length and acidity on the finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
Concentrated dark plum, dried blueberry and cherry tart flavors feature creamy accents, flanked by chocolate and spice notes. Dusty hints show on the finish.- Wine Spectator (December 2019)
