Head High Sonoma County Pinot Noir 2018 - 750ml

$ 23.00

92 Points Decanter 

Head High is the second label for Three Sticks, whose 2017 Price Family Estates Pinot from the Sonoma Coast won a Best in Show at the 2019 Decanter World Wine Awards. If your pockets don't stretch that far, this is a delicious wine for half the price, sourced from top Sonoma County parcels including Durell, Wildcat and Sangiacomo Family Vineyards. Perfumed violets, lifted summer pudding aromas and flavours and bright acidity make this a really quaffable style, supported by gentle wood smoke notes from 10 months in French oak barrels, 25% new.

Additional Details

2018 was one of those magical years. With a mild spring, the early growing season plodded along at a relatively normal pace. Once the berries set, they knew they had a healthy, full crop. So full, in fact, they did a few fruit-thinning passes to reduce the load on the vines. Even with this, they were happy to see an above average harvest with superb quality. They started picking in earnest after Labor Day with cool, fall weather that allowed them to transfer the grapes at a calm and measured pace. All in all, 2018 will go down as a year to remember, creating wine of true depth and power.

A project from wine entrepreneur Bill Price, owner of  Kistler, Kosta Browne and Three Sticks winery.  This Pinot is a blend from several vineyards throughout the Sonoma Coast, including Durell Vineyard, Wildcat Vineyard, and Sangiacomo. Rich and gutsy, this is a black-fruited wonder that still maintains nice balance and acidity.

Applying exceptional winemaking expertise to Sonoma County’s unique terroir, Head High Wines offers vibrant, high-quality wines at an attainable price. They strive to be one of the most environmentally conscious wine brands in the world, responsible stewards of the land in all they do. 

In surfing slang, “head high” refers to the perfect sized wave - one that builds to the height of a rider’s head. They also like the other implied meaning: to set the bar as high as they can. They’re an adventurous winery, built by surfers and explorers. They’re free-spirited and creative, but are also focused and hardworking winegrowers, dedicated to creating the best possible wines through vineyard stewardship, intelligent fruit sourcing, and meticulous care in the cellar. Really great wines should be available to everyone. Now they are.

Head High wines are produced by adventurous winegrowers who share a passion for nature, active living, and making the world a better place. They do that through environmental and community stewardship, donating proceeds from sales to their favorite environmental non-profit organizations.
