The wild raspberries, Asian spice, green tea and a mocha nose convey the classic Sonoma Coast Pinot characteristics. Your mouth will explode with flavors of ripe wild berries, cranberries, toasted marshmallow, graham cracker, toffee and white pepper. Rich tannins and acidity balance out the ripe, wild berry flavors, citrus peel and fresh herbs. The long, rich mouthfeel finish this fantastic textural experience.

This is a pretty Pinot that is light and silky on the palate, and comforting in its moderate alcohol and spicy, exotic flavors. It offers waves of wild forest berry pie, baking spice, sweet-and-sour persimmon and sandalwood flavors that are intriguingly complex. Absolutely delightful now.

Dark ruby. Showing a more brooding personality than the Sonoma County bottling, offering aromas and flavors of blackberry and bitter cherry and a hint of candied licorice. Plump and velvety in texture, with strong finishing punch and lingering smokiness.
