Description

The Vineyards

The 2017 Nichole’s Blend Pinot Noir is another great wine in the history of our Nichole’s Blend Pinot Noirs made with fruit from Sonoma County vineyards including Sangiacomo and Desmond Vineyard as well as declassified barrels of our Vineyard Designated wines. 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 produce 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. The resulting wine is an excellent example of the harmony between these distinctive regions within Sonoma County.

Winemaker Notes

The wine possesses an attractive inky purple hue. In the bowl, aromas of ripe raspberry, Marion Berry, Santa Rosa Plum, sassafras, cedar, and sweet oak coalesce. Concentrated flavors that mimic the aromatics intermingle with the silky tannins, sappy blue fruit, and a hint of citrus pith on the back end. Lasting flavors of ripe blackberry and espresso highlight the finish. Drink now, or over the next 7 to 10 years.
