Malk Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2018

Release Date: September 2020

The 2018 vintage of Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast continues a run of several years of incredible depth and concentration. Upfront aromatics are noticed right away, full of dark cherry and wild strawberry, complemented by notes of forest floor, black tea and dried herbs.  What makes this 2018 Fort Ross/Seaview Pinot particularly striking is the way its bright and lively palate balances the depth of fruit with the subtlety of its minerality. This vineyard is truly starting to shine and this wine is an exceptional example of the Northern California style of Pinot Noir.
