2015 Blue Wing Vineyard Pinot Noir

Estate

Winemaking Notes

Our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir has brilliant aromas of cherry, pomegranate, and baking spices. On the palate, flavors of cherry, cranberry and wild strawberry are framed by fine-grained tannins, coastal minerality and bright acidity that culminate on the lengthy finish. The wine was barrel fermented in French oak creating elegant spice characteristics and a silky, smooth texture.

Food pairings

Enjoy this wine with charcuterie, grilled salmon or roasted pork.

History

Situated in the Southern and Western end of Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast is a distinct region that is directly influenced by the Pacific Ocean and is known to produce Pinot Noir of exceptional complexity with true varietal and terroir characteristics unique to the region. Our Sonoma Coast Blue Wing vineyard sits at the very closest point to the San Pablo Bay within the Petaluma Gap. The Petaluma Gap channels coastal fog and sea breezes to the vineyard every late afternoon, where cool nights and warm days of filtered sunlight bring out the very best in our Pinot Noir. The longer, colder growing season results in harvests well into October at times, producing elegant complexity and character with our Blue Wing vineyard delivering true to the appellation distinct wines that are crisp, elegant and a beautiful representation of Sonoma Coast.

The Vineyards

Early winter showers were followed by a warm, dry beginning to the new growing season, setting the stage for an early bud break. Alternating overcast days and heat waves continued through spring and summer, with a particularly hot period in late June, and an unseasonal rain in July. This Pinot Noir was harvested from our Blue Wing vineyard on the Sonoma Coast on September 3 and 4.
