Complicated Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2015
Complicated 2015 Pinot Noir is a classic Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. With good clarity and a soft, ruby color in the glass, the wine presents beautiful aromas of crushed violets and cherry blossoms complimented by oak notes of sweet vanilla, cedar and spice. The smooth, full mouthfeel of this wine supports flavors of strawberry jam, sweet smoke, roasted nuts.
The Sonoma Coast AVA is an American Viticultural Area in Sonoma County, California, mostly along the coastline of the Pacific Ocean. It extends from San Pablo Bay to the border of Mendocino County. The appellation is known for its cool climate and high rainfall relative to other parts of Sonoma County. Burgundian varietals Pinot Noir and Chardonnay star in this cool–climate appellation.
Similar to other great wine regions in Northern California, the 2015 growing season in Sonoma Coast was ideal. Our growing season started earlier than other locations because the coastal influence protected us from frost. The region’s classic, moderate temperatures elongated the growing season allowing our grapes to retain acidity and develop classic Pinot Noir flavors.
