RATINGS

93+ The Wine Advocate

Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Day One has a very pretty nose of red roses and lavender over a core of crushed red cherries, raspberries and wild thyme with a waft of dusty soil. Medium-bodied with a very ripe, fine-grained frame and seamless freshness lifting the layered floral and red berry flavors, it finishes wonderfully fragrant. 280 cases produced.

...impeccable in its balance. Pliant and inviting, with lovely texture... Expressive floral notes add perfume to this gracious, mid-weight Pinot...

REGION

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.

TYPE

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.
