Red currants, kirsch, blood orange, and hibiscus are pleasantly welcoming. Hints of rhubarb, rose petal, and star-anise add complexity as the wine opens and invites you in. The hallmark of this wine's palate is texture and verve. Dark red fruit, strong coastal influences of forest floor, and holiday spice enhance the freshness and complexity of this wine. A remarkable representation of vintage and variety, we are thrilled with its drinkability today and the future age-worthiness.

Fruity and earthy in good measure, this memorable wine is effusive in baked cherry and racy acidity, the spice components equally intriguing in cardamom, clove and pepper. Cohesive and supple on the palate, it is a great showcase for the vintage and appellation.

Moving to the reds, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was all destemmed and spent 10 months in 28% new French oak. Bright black cherry, mulberry, and passion fruit as well as lots of violet and spice notes emerge from this medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced effort. With terrific purity of fruit, a kiss of background oak, and a great finish, it's a terrific appellation wine to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years or so.
