This has impressive depth and poise with a composed, richly flavored palate that delivers all the red cherries, light spice and cascading tannins of quality pinot noir. Drink now.

Pale ruby, the 2016 Pinot Noir has a classic nose of red and black cherries, cola, smoke, tea leaves and earth. Light to medium-bodied, it has good concentration of fruit, spice and earth in the mouth, softly textured with grainy tannins and finishing juicy.

The 2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is medium-bodied, offering subtle fruit flavors, bright acidity and structure that sing in intricate harmony. Inviting aromas of firm blackberry, cedar and pitted cherry are accentuated with floral notes. The nuanced palate balances bright cherry, blackberry and pluot fruits with hints of savory fennel fronds and sea mist. This wine is medium-bodied and typical of Sonoma Coast with bright acidity, subtle fruit flavors and elegant structure.
