Tasting notes

Plums, fresh tilled earth, cinnamon stick and black raspberry aromas fill the alluring nose of this deeply saturated wine. Luscious fruit fills the palate, but the delicate tannins and some serious natural acidity frame this wine and gives it the room it needs to strut its pure Sonoma Coast fruit.

Production

Vintage Notes

We are proud to be the first winery to produce and release a Gamay Noir from the Sonoma Coast. The site we chose, Black Knight Vineyard, grows both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and in 2014 we grafted an older block of Chardonnay over to Gamay Noir. We harvested a small amount of fruit in 2015 and made a tasty little wine that is long gone. 2016 was the first release of this wine at wholesale, and the 2018 epitomizes the vibrancy and energy that this site can express.
