2017 Ernest Vineyards Pinot Noir
Sonoma Coast, California
A classic, balanced Pinot Noir with restrained alcohol (13.5%) that is drinking so well right now. This appellation blend is a captivating example of the style of Pinot Noir that can be cultivated on the far reaches of the West Sonoma Coast. Retaining natural acidity and exhibiting a restrained fruit expression, this Pinot Noir is an authentic example of what is possible in cooler climates of California. The wine is loaded with concentrated flavors of ripe berries, cherries, sage, and potting soil. Ripe yet restrained, this bottle is perfect for sipping chilled with mushroom risottos, root vegetables, and the like. Only 300 cases were made.
