A far cry from average, this bold Pinot Noir offers a deeper, more savory bouquet. Subtle earth and ground herbs join intense cherry, blackberry and currant. The palate is fine-boned, with exquisitely ripe tannins, and the finish is long. As Jeb Dunnuck summarizes, “It’s a rock star in this stacked lineup and a gem of a wine in the vintage.” Not to be missed.

Jeb Dunnuck

Coming from a block located on a northern facing ridge north of Fort Ross, on the Sonoma Coast, the 2017 Pinot Noir Far Coast Vineyard was destemmed and spent 17 months in 32% new French oak. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, it offers a deeper, richer, more savory bouquet of black cherry and darker currant fruits as well as loads of ground herbs, chocolate, forest floor, and spice. This rich, opulent, incredibly sexy Pinot Noir has a wealth of fruit, a rounded, seamless texture, and a great finish. It's a rock star in this stacked lineup and a gem of a wine in the vintage. I love it!
