2016 Blue Wing VIneyard Pinot Noir

Estate

Winemaking Notes

Our Blue Wing Vineyard Pinot Noir has brilliant aromas of cherry, red currant and baking spices. On the palate, flavors of cherry and wild strawberry are framed by fine-grained tannins, coastal minerality and bright acidity that culminate on the lengthy finish. The wine was barrel ages in French oak creating elegant spice characterists and a silky, smooth texture.

Food pairings

Enjoy this wine with a cherry and fig chutney grilled bread, roasted vegetables or pulled 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 Cost 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 within 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, with a good amount of rain, were followed by a warm, dry spring. Alternating overcast days and heat waves continued through spring and summer, with a warm July and August. Overcast days in mid to late August, kept the morning's cool preserving acidity and warm daytime temperatures led to perfectly ripe fruit. We harvested the fruit between September 7 and 14.
