2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Putnam Vineyard
True Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, Putnam Vineyard, clones 115 and 777.
True Sonoma Coast location, way up in the hills of town of Annapolis, and less than 6 miles from the coast. Colder climate Pinot Noir profile as it should be, rich, dense and elegant all at the same time. Plenty of red cherry, wild berry, pomegranate and some baking spices so often found in colder climate Pinot on the nose, palate follows with lots of red fruits, red berries, pomegranate, a touch of citrus and white pepper with some mineral notes, and plush, seamless mid palate that flows to a very long and clean finish. Aged in 50% new French oak. Just 46 cases.
