2015 Pinot Noir, Heritage SelectionSonoma Valley
The 2015 Heritage Selection Pinot Noir is a true expression of its growing season: compact, dense, and powerful.
Mother Nature determines the unique qualities of each vintage, especially when the fruit comes from one very specific block of our oldest vines. The 2015 Heritage Selection Pinot Noir is a true expression of its growing season: compact, dense, and powerful. Still youthful and tightly knit, bold aromatics of vanilla bean, black cherry, and fresh mushrooms intertwine with toasty oak, drawing the senses into a round, creamy palate rich with savory clove, black raspberry, and framed by dusty tannins. Tempting to open now, we highly recommend aging this sleeping giant for at least six months (and up to 2025) or decanting for a few hours.
Eight miles north of San Pablo Bay, the Bundschu family's 158 year-old vineyard wraps around the southwest slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains. The terrain below 150 feet elevation features gently sloping Huichica clay loam soils with gravel deposits and cooler growing conditions that deliver minerality and focused acidity. Wines grown in these blocks bear the Sonoma Coast designation to reflect their cool climate character. One distinct block of 45-year-old Heritage vines is harvested for this limited bottling.
