This is a flowery, raspberry-scented Pinot Noir with some leafy underbrush notes, great fruit on they attack, medium to full body, and plenty of Burgundian character.

Racy and exuberant from the outset, the 2014 Pinot Noir Pastorale Vineyard boasts tremendous depth to match its racy personality. Dark red cherry, cola, plum and spice offer an expression of generosity and radiance


United States, California, Sonoma, Sonoma Coast

Sonoma Coast AVA runs from San Pablo Bay in the south to Mendocino County in the north. It includes 7,000 vineyard acres and earned AVA status in 1987. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean means it gets double the rainfall of nearby inland appellations and the ocean gives the appellation a relatively cool climate. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir can thrive in these conditions, and there are numerous producers making critically acclaimed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
