ORIGIN: US: California
TYPE/VARIETAL: Pinot Noir
PRODUCT: Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Using sustainable and organic farming practices, Flowers meticulously farms their estate vineyards on the extreme Sonoma Coast. The Pinot Noir benefits directly from the influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean which provides cool daytime breezes during bright sunny days to ensure proper ripening and chilly evening fogs to guarantee lively acidity for freshness in the finished wines.
All of the fruit is hand-harvested into small bins in the early morning to protect the fruit and preserve freshness. At the winery, hand sorting begins on a custom-built shaker table. Pinot Noir clusters are dispersed and gently conveyed to the next sorting table where six sorters assess the clusters that will be allowed to pass to the fermenters.
Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir has a medium-light garnet color. Cherry compote aromas accentuated by fennel spice and violet. Flavors evocative of roasted meats, olives and citrus add to the complexity. Acidity is balanced with supple tannins to produce a smooth, uplifting finish. Enjoy now or cellar up to 3 years.
