The Sonoma Coast appellationis fast becoming a premiere growing region for exceptional pinot noir and chardonnay. Cool coastal winds with foggy mornings and evenings helps to create a longer growing season and deep, complex wines that evoke European sophistication. 

For the 2014 Ten Acre Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, we chose specific blocks of our vineyards that showcase the Sonoma Coast style and focused on clones 667, 777, 115 and Pommard. We fermented the pinot noir fruit for 18 days, using 10% whole cluster. Only free run juice was used to make this elegant, sophisticated wine. The Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir was aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, 35% new. A single racking before bottling creates a balanced, complex, unfiltered wine. 

Royal ruby-red in color, aromas of licorice, clove and black cherry lead into an elegant, soft, floral mouthfeel. A firm, structured finish makes this wine an elegant expression of cool-cimate pinot noir.
