Sourced from two Petaluma Gap vineyards on the Eastern Sonoma Coast, this wine will rock your world! Intense aromatics jump out of the glass of this bold Pinot Noir. Amazing nose of black cherries, pomegranate, and a whiff of earth. This is a well-crafted wine with tons of sex-appeal. On the mid-palate, this full-bodied youngster struts a hint of appealing sweetness courtesy of the dark plum, dark cherry flavors, a touch of sage and black intertwined with well-balanced acidity, very classic Pinot Noir. It rolls over the palate without any hesitation and finishes with a soft, silky mouthfeel.
