This is a bigger wine than many of the Sonoma Coast Pinots, as such, it will perhaps, take a bit longer to mature. Purple in color with ruby swirls, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is very tight. Spice. With air, black cherries and slight sour cherries emerge. Great, lush texture. On the palate, cherries, coffee and slight sour cherries. This is either ripe or has a bit of residual sugar as it does come off almost sweet. Nice finish. These needs another seven to ten years in the cellar and it should come together beautifully. Right now, this is a Pinot for those who like them their Pinots ripe and large. It is probably better on its own for now. If serving with food, this would work with a (spicy) Chicken Chili.
