2018 Sonoma Coast Pratt Vineyard - Sexton Road Pinot Noir
2018 Pinot Noir
The 2018 Pinot Noir Pratt Vineyard-Sexton Road is once again one of the most distinctive wines in the range. Sage, cedar, tobacco and dried flowers give the 2018 its strong savory and floral scents. Deep dark fruit fills out the layers nicely. Sweet pipe tobacco, mint and dried flowers add aromatic signature.

About This Wine
The Pratt Sexton Vineyard is a unique hillside vineyard west of the town of Sebastopol that benefitted greatly from a long stretch of dry and mild days during the harvest season of 2018. Being a cooler site, the perfect late season ripening weather allowed us to capture the bright aromatics that this site always produces, combined with soft tannins and lively acidity to bring it all home. The charming bramble-fruit character jumps from the glass, accentuated by dried herbs and anise. A beautiful wine from a unique vineyard in a near-perfect vintage.
