2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 750 mL

This wine is a blend of our vineyards from the northern Sonoma Coast in the Fort Ross - Seaview AVA. Carolyn Martinelli’s family homesteaded this property in the 1860s when her family came to California by wagon train and have been the owners ever since. The lively nose on our 2018 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is filled with the aromas of strawberry, ripe raspberry and tobacco leaf. It is well rounded throughout the mouth with flavors of red cherry and strawberry preserves that complement the velvety finish.

Vineyard Notes
This wine is mostly a blend of our Pinot Noir vineyards from the northern Sonoma Coast in the Fort Ross - Seaview AVA. Carolyn Martinelli’s family homesteaded this property in the 1860’s, when her family came to California by wagon train and have been the owners ever since. The cool maritime influence from the Pacific makes these vineyard sites ideal for growing the cool climate Burgundian varietal.
Winemaker Notes
The 2018 season was much calmer than 2017, due to the absence of extra rain and heat spikes we experiences in 2017. The moderate temperature in the spring and summer allowed for a longer growing season and full flavor development. There was plenty of water in the soil to carry the clusters through the long growing season with minimal dehydration. Our first day of harvest in 2018 was September 10th, compared with an August 26th start in 2017. It was nice that the production crew could enjoy the Labor Day holiday right before the long hours and hard work of harvest began.
