2015 TERRA DE PROMISSIO VINEYARD Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
The Terra de Promissio Vineyard is owned and managed by Charles and Diana Karren with the help of Diana’s parents it is a true family operation. Planted in 2002 to Pinot Noir clones 777 and 115 it is located east of Petaluma on a rolling hill in what is unofficially referred to as the Petaluma Gap of the Sonoma Coast AVA. Buffeted by cold maritime winds the fruit ripens slowly and produces wines of exceptional elegance and purity.
A color of fresh cut red beets introduces aromas of black cherry, black tea, and peanut skins. Flavors of ripe raspberry, black cherry, tea, dried herbs, cocoa nib swim across the tongue. Ripe, fine grained tannins mingle with ripe red fruits on a rich, lingering finish. Tremendously pleasing, but designed to age. Drink now, or over the next 5 to 10 years.
