2018 Wayfarer 'Wayfarer Vineyard' Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

$89.95

Each block was hand-picked and delivered to the winery before sunrise, the cool clusters sorted, destemmed, and transferred to the tank for a week of cold maceration and then 2 weeks of 100% native yeast fermentation. 15 months in 58% new French oak followed and now, finally, we can all toast to a job well done! The Wine Advocate’s Erin Brooks was duly impressed with the “slowly opening perfume of garrigue, dried orange peel, prosciutto and rose petals with mineral-laced cranberry and red and black berry fruits,” scoring the effort an impressive 98+ points.

Wine Advocate

The 2018 Pinot Noir Wayfarer Vineyard has a medium ruby color and slowly opening perfume of garrigue, dried orange peel, prosciutto and rose petals with mineral-laced cranberry and red and black berry fruits. The medium-bodied palate, grainy and incredibly fresh, slowly gains in flavor amplitude and nuance in the mouth, ending in a fanfare of spicy detail.
