Wine Dark Sea
2020 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
We began this project with a passion for the cooler reaches of Sonoma County. We wanted to focus on those vineyards at the edge of the Coast in view of the Pacific. We matched this brooding style of Pinot Noir with an equally evocative name, Wine Dark Sea: The phrase first penned by Homer in the 8th Century BC. And to lend imagery, selected a contemporary work by artist Tacita Dean which we believe perfectly captures the mystery of the Pacific Coast here in Sonoma.
Ruby hued, dense and rich Pinot Noir displaying the acidity and gorgeous structure of grapes grown in the extreme edge of the Sonoma Coast. Beautiful layers of forest floor, wild berries and brambly spice wrapped in a velvet robe. This wine shows how incredible a California Pinot Noir can be when grown in the right region.
