In the rising landscape of Western Sonoma County, once dotted with apple trees, the hills of Sebastopol are now blessed with Pinot Noir vineyards. Painted in fog during much of the late summer, the grapes keep cool during their last days of maturation. A touch of fruit, a kiss of earth; we have combined a stunning selection of vineyards to create this joy for your soul.

Tasting Notes on Release

This wine has a bright nose of fresh cranberry, red raspberry and strawberry mixed with spice notes of white pepper and earthen floor. The brightness carries through to the palate, filled with flavors of pomegranate mixed with a panoply of red fruits, baking spices, white pepper with a subtle rich minerality. The mouth-feel integrates earthiness with the fresh fruit and fine tannins in the mid palate.  The finish is long and rich, revealing silky tannins combined with emerging cherry, gentle minerality, lustrous acidity and white pepper.
