Pinot Noir
Description

The Private Reserve wines are the ultimate wines within the portfolio; limited in production, sourced from the finest vineyards in Sonoma County and from appellations best suited for a specific varietal given the dramatic diversity in climatic and soil conditions across the County.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

The 2018 Private Reserve Pinot Noir opens with aromas of black cherry, red currant, and a touch of violets. 

Palate: 

On the palate this wine is bursting with flavors of Bing cherries, raspberries, and potpurri. This medium-bodied Pinot has well integrated tannins and balanced acidity.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The Private Reserve Pinot Noir was sourced from the cooler Sonoma County region, allowing evening fog to influence the acidity while afternoon sunshine leads to the development of bright fruit flavors that culminate in this rich, enticing wine.
