Moving to the Pinot Noirs, the base appellation 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was 60% destemmed and spent 11 months in 20% new French oak. This gorgeous Pinot Noir displays lots of red and black raspberry fruits, notes of forest floor, smoked earth, and a touch of graphite. With medium-bodied richness, a solid spine of acidity, building tannins, and straight-up beautiful balance, it's going to benefit from another year or two of bottle age and keep for a decade. It's beautifully done.
Powerfully spiced, with an intense core of dried cherry and raspberry flavors that are fine-textured and filled with forest floor accents. Mineral-filled finish is focused and backed by zesty acidity. Drink now through 2025. 852 cases made.
We’re opening a bottle as you read this. Matt is an organic and biodynamic winegrowing expert in addition to his winemaking chops, which you’ll appreciate the moment this hits your glass. Pinot people! Sonoma Coast at its finest -- tons of energy in this wine, hugely aromatic with purple fruit, plum jam, a bit of dark cocoa powder, sweet herb and tons of bright, focused flavors. Finishes up all yummy with a touch of clove-y spice and even a bit of orange citrus. The production of these is so small, it’s pretty amazing to have a few. Grab it while we have it!
PAIRING IDEAS: A simple roast chicken is perfect! This is my go-to recipe from Samin Nosrat's cookbook "SALT FAT ACID HEAT". Such an easy recipe!
MUSIC SUGGESTIONS: This gorgeous pinot spins me "right round, baby, right round". Blast some of that good Dead or Alive song, and have an awesome Saturday!!
