Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This complex wine shows bright hibiscus, vanilla and dark cherry aromas. Forest floor, blackberry and cassis fill the palate with a touch of oak on the finish. Serious, layered tannins round out this intense, yet delicate wine.
Vineyard Notes
El Coro Vineyard sits at the property's ridge-top, the loamy soils are heavily exposed to the Petaluma Gap winds. The open exposure has a dramatic effect on the thickness of the skins and leads to intense fruit and bright acidity. We have an array of clones planted here, 828, 666, 777, Swan, and LT, which add layers of complexity to this Pinot Noir.
