Notes from the Winemaker:
The wine has a bright garnet color with an amazingly high-toned explosive nose of wild sage, blood orange peel, raspberry and shiitake mushrooms. The palate is quite bright and lively with acidity and yet warm with flavors of orange blossom, red fruits, orange peel, well integrated French oak and herbs. There is a great generous fresh forward varietal fruit to the wine making it great to drink now or over the next few years. The balance of the wine keeps it fresh and at the same time mouth filling with expansive flavors. The wine finishes with a beautiful mouth-watering savory character that brings you back for glass after glass!

Barrel Aging: Aged in 100% French oak for a total of 10 months. 10% of the barrels were new.

Vineyard Profile:
This 2017 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir comes from two different vineyards, one in the southern part of the appellation where the climate is moderated both by the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay (the same vineyard as the 2015 and 2016 RouteStock Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir), and the other out in the extreme “true” Sonoma Coast just a mile and a half in from the Pacific Ocean. The two vineyards are made up of three distinct pinot noir clones, Pommard, 667 and 777, giving the wine greater complexity of flavor.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points & #66 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:
"This offers creamy raspberry, currant and wild plum flavors, supported by medium-grained tannins. The spicy finish lingers with chocolate notes and hints of mint. Drink now through 2023. 5,024 cases made. —KM
