Tasting NOTES

Continuing a streak of great Sonoma vintages-thanks, Mother Nature!-the 2016 Pinot Noir has some of the delicious fruit and concentration of its '14 and '15 predecessors, with the more pronounced earthy character of '13. Red cherries and dried cranberries spiced with vanilla ride an underlying earthiness out of the glass. On the palate, the silky texture is framed by firm acidity and a touch of tannin, carrying complex flavors of more cranberries, cherries, earth, and cocoa through a long finish. Will continue to age 5-7 years from vintage.

Vineyard NOTES

Eight miles north of San Pablo Bay, the Bundschu familys 158 year-old vineyard wraps around the southwest slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains. The terrain below 150 foot 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.
