This extraordinary Pinot Noir makes excellent use of the 27-year-old vines and Nobles Ranch vineyard terroir. Intensely perfumed with warm cranberries and fresh raspberries over cinnamon and sage notes, the palate bursts with vivacity and the finish is long and aromatic. Enjoy immediately or watch it continue to evolve over the coming decade.
Leading off the Pinot Noirs, the 2017 Pinot Noir Coteaux Nobles comes from the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA and is one of the more complex, nuanced wines in the lineup. Classic notes of kirsch, blueberries, incense, candied violets, and kisses of cola and cedary spice all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced Pinot Noir that has fine tannins and integrated acidity. Drink it over the coming decade.
