Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast "Small Town"
Notes from the Winery:
Our love affair with the foggy Freestone region continues to provide us with both inspiration and challenges each vintage. Such is the glorious and nail-biting fate of winegrowers willing to “live on the edge” in truly cool-climate Pinot country.
At 65% of the blend, the vivid 667 clone results in even more acid and structure than vintages past. Crackling with energy and freshness, we’re once again smitten with the results. 15% whole-cluster fermentation further enhances the spicy, savory side of the wine, while bright and juicy red fruit sails across the palate from start to finish. To balance this bracing personality, 40% new French oak and careful selections from both Stiling Vineyard and Roberts Road add mid-palate and texture to the finished wine.
