Elegant notes of raspberry, Black cherry, and plum are backed delicately by subtle spice and vanilla as this true representation of Sonoma County culminates with soft tannin and a long finish. Pair with cheese with slightly sweet, nutty flavors and smooth texture served with pork-based charcuterie. Anchovies, herring, mackerel, mullet fish or grilled salmon with a mild butter sauce. Lamb or pork chops with grilled vegetables. Pasta with light tomato sauce made with wine, broth or a touch of cream. A classic beef Bourguignon or lightly marinated beef tenderloin or filet mignon.

Aromas of cranberry, rose petal, wet gravel and slight tar greet the nose. The palate is earthy in tones of crushed rock, dried thyme and desert sagebrush, which give depth to the fresh cranberry-fruit backdrop.

A blend of sites and clones, all from Sonoma County, the 2018 Pinot Noir was destemmed and brought up in neutral French oak. There were 2,000 cases made. Revealing a medium ruby/translucent purple hue to go with a beautiful nose of spiced strawberries, raspberries, crushed flowers, and violets, it's beautifully textured and medium-bodied, with good acidity and outstanding length. You're going to be hard pressed to find a better Sonoma County Pinot Noir at the price, and it's going to drink brilliantly for 2-4 years.

The light ruby colored 2018 Pinot Noir has tart cherries, cranberries and rhubarb on the nose with notes of earth and sweet spices. The light-bodied palate is restrained with juicy acidity and a simple finish. 2,000 cases produced.
