2016 NICHOLE’S BLEND Sonoma County

Description

The Vineyards
The fruit for the 2016 Nichole’s Blend Pinot Noir comes from the Sangiacomo and Desmond Vineyards as well as declassified barrels of our Vineyard Designated wines. The resulting wine is an excellent example of the harmony between these distinctive regions within Sonoma County. From as far south as the Petaluma Gap, where the cold maritime breezes help to produce wines of excellent purity and elegance; to the East on top of Sonoma Mountain, with its volcanic soils which produces wines with structure and savoriness; to the far western edge of the Russian River Valley, which produces wines with richness and ripe dark fruit flavors.

Winemaker Notes
A deep inky blue-red color introduces this gorgeous wine. After a light swirl a mélange of ripe raspberry, Marion berry, streusel, sassafras, cedar, tobacco, and fresh cracked black pepper fill the bowl. The potpourri of aromas is matched on the palate. Decorated with suave tannins and bright acidy sappy red fruit and sassafras are tied together with goji berry and notes of blood orange. Lingering flavors of ripe raspberry and mocha bring closure to an extremely pleasing wine. Drink now, or over the next 5 to 7 years.
