I loved the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast, which has a great nose of spiced red fruits, dried flowers, forest floor, chocolate, and some meaty, charcuterie-like nuances. Rich, full-bodied, and opulent on the palate, it's not for those looking for delicate aromas and flavors yet stays nicely balanced and is certainly a terrific drink. Enjoy bottles over the coming 2-3 years.
This Pinot was crafted from the Pfendler vineyards in the Petaluma Gap region of the Sonoma Coast. Aged in 100% new French Oak, this powerhouse Pinot Noir is packed with spring flowers, black raspberries, kirsch, and licorice with subtle notes of forest floor. Deep purple in color, this is truly a Cabernet drinker’s Pinot Noir.
