2016 Cresta Velia Pinot Noir

We had to push the bottling date back from August to December, due to circumstances beyond our control, and after tasting the results we will continue to bottle the Pinot in December. This  extra time in barrel has helped create a more complex and savory wine that still retains its freshness. The wine is made of equal parts clone 115 and 667 and has the color of pale to medium ruby with a nose of spearmint, pipe tobacco, earth and crushed raspberries. The mid palate is dense and medium bodied with generous amounts of red fruit, spice and cherry cola and supported by fully ripe and welcoming tannins. Our most serious effort thus far from the Sonoma Coast.

  • 100% Pinot Noir
