An incredibly smooth, almost voluptuous palate with ripe, concentrated aromas of bramble, blackberry, raspberry, and red cherry, with attractive floral and lavender aromas as well as pepper, licorice, and smoke from the oak. The full body is lifted by vibrant acidity, leading into a long, mouthcoating finish. Intense and tasty.

The 2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is medium-bodied, offering subtle fruit flavors, bright acidity and structure that sing in intricate harmony. Inviting aromas of firm blackberry, cedar and pitted cherry are accentuated with floral notes. The nuanced palate balances bright cherry, blackberry and pluot fruits with hints of savory fennel fronds and sea mist.
