Thankfully, the Pinot Noir thrives in the harsh environs of the Sonoma Coast. This Pinot Noir release includes a small (3%) blend of Pinotage. Fruit was handpicked at night and barreled in 15% new French Oak and 85% older French oak.

The appellation is the newly designated Fort Ross-SeaView AVA. Aromas of dark fruits and black tea with a hint of sage introduce the black cherry and raspberry flavors. The Pinotage adds subtle notes of spice and bramble. Some plum is apparent with whispers of nutmeg and vanilla.
