West Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Tasting Note

Hailing from the newly established West Sonoma Coast AVA, this inaugural release displays deep ruby in tint with Bing cherry, wild mountain berry, and an ethereal note of damp earth. Vibrant red and blue fruits dance on the palate, accompanied by oyster shell and a stony tension in character with its coastal influences. A silky texture and uplifted acidity add a sophistication and intensity to this wine, as well as a remarkably long finish.


The West Sonoma Coast appellation lies along a mountainous, rugged stretch of coastline characterized by a cold, maritime climate that pushes the boundaries of traditional viticulture. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the West, this challenging climate yields wines beloved for their vibrant acidity, firm structure, and pure fruit flavors. One of the newest sub-appellations of Sonoma, this area’s distinctive wines offer a striking contrast to the soft, round wines of warmer inland regions.
