The palate is soft, juicy and round with some cherry licorice and mineral notes added. The finish has slightly salivating acidity with hints of the earthy, dried forest floor notes common to our wines though less than in the 2019 or 2018 Sonoma Coast Pinots.

900 Cases This may be the most hedonistically pleasing Sonoma Coast Pinot noir we have ever made. The warmth during harvest is reflected in the wine with the fruit notes driving the profile. Many blocks usually found in the Estate Pinot noirs are in this blend and, as a result, you find some of the blood orange aromas from Scallop Shelf (due to the Pommard selection) and cherry notes from Ama (block 7 suitcase clone) playing leading roles in the aroma. The palate is soft, juicy and round with some cherry licorice and mineral notes added. The finish has slightly salivating acidity with hints of the earthy, dried forest floor notes common to our wines though less than in the 2019 or 2018 Sonoma Coast Pinots. Due to the fruit-driven vintage and winemaking decisions (no new oak), this wine is fully-integrated despite its youth and is ready to strut itself right now. I recommend a little decant to let the wine emerge and I found it even more energetic and expressive on day two.
