Los Primeros Pinot Noir
For our 2021 Los Primeros Pinot Noir we blended both declassified barrels from some of our top single vineyard wines along with contracted sources chosen by the winemaking team for specific aroma and flavor profiles. Layered into this are blending components from a handful of truly elite Sonoma Coast producers.
Visually, the wine is a light ruby which fades to delicate pink with a hint of brick red. By sight alone one would think this to be cote de Beaune rather than California. But the nose has classic Sonoma cherry cola nut and ripe raspberry with bacon fat, sage, white button mushroom and fall leaves. On the palate, the wine is on the lighter side of medium body and bursts with black cherry and pomegranate. This initial fruit is followed by a brace of acidity with tons of spice followed by black pepper, paprika, sage, tomato leaf and hints of oyster shell.
