"The 2019 Pinot Noir La Brisa hails from the Sonoma Coast and has a rich, ripe, sexy style that still shows elegance and purity as well as complexity. Lots of black raspberry and mulberry fruit emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort, which has plenty of bouquet garni and spice-laced aromatics, ripe, soft tannins, and a great finish. It brings lots of fruit in a balanced, textured, incredibly satisfying package."

"A woodsy aroma leads to well-spiced flavors of chocolate brioche and dark plum tart, ending with concentrated toastiness on the long, juicy finish."

The Climate
Stresses vines into producing grapes of full varietal intensity.

The 2019 La Brisa opens with ample cherry, strawberry and cranberry flavors accented with dried herbs and tea. The rich texture and fine tannins are complimented by cool-climate acidity and whole cluster complexity. Toasty barrel notes carry through a savory finish.

This blend is predominately from our Bob’s Ranch Estate, with Gap’s Crown and Calesa vineyards completing the blend which features both Dijon and heritage clones. The resulting combination of diverse vineyard sites and clonal variation creates a complex wine with abundant fruit, making it a delicious Sonoma Coast blend.

Vintage NotesThe 2019 vintage began with a wet spring bringing three inches of rain in May. In response to the late rains our vineyards received diligent attention to control vigorous vine growth. A long Indian summer followed with mild weather, allowing the fruit to ripen at slow, even place. The long picking windows bore fruit with beautiful freshness at optimal ripeness. The resulting wines are exceptionally elegant.
