The wine has a wonderfully complex nose of sweet earth; vanilla and spice stimulate the olfactory. On the palate, its soft chalky tannins and bright acidity combine to produce a lush, full mouthfeel. Rich, deep flavors of black currant, plum, cherry and tobacco endure, with a touch of dark chocolate on the finish.
Deeply hued garnet and delightful aromas of black cherry and rose petals persuade one to sip earnestly. Once on the tongue, silky and inviting flavors envelop the palate, with a friendly, long, postured finish.
Prominent aromas of fresh ocean air and green tea leaf arrive before the palate is introduced to red raspberry and tart cranberry flavors. This Sonoma Mountain Pinot Noir is a very different, unique wine. Its tannins that rule in this Bennett Valley area, compared to the acid that has a greater influence nearer to the coast.
