2014 The Warrior Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
The Warrior" is a project from a few Napa Valley insiders who buy wine from luxury producers that have too much wine to sell. It's easier to sell 700 cases of a $65 Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast than it is to sell 1,700 cases at that price.
This wine was made by a very high-quality Napa Valley producer from iconic vineyards on the Sonoma Coast. It's an exacting blend of specific vineyard lots produced from Sonoma Coast vineyards ranging from Occidental to the Petaluma Gap. They also included lots from Gap's Crown, Sangiacomo, Rodgers Creek and Riddle Vineyards. Various Pinot Noir clones such as 115, 828, 667, Pommard, and Wädenswil 2A were used from these vineyards and adds unique flavor, textural and aromatic profiles creating a complex and flavorful Pinot Noir. Killer value!"
