The 2016 vintage in Sonoma County was almost perfect with moderate late winter rains, providing a healthy boost to the drought-stricken region. Moderate spring and summer weather led to elegant, profound wines with tremendous amounts of expression even at an early age.
Made with Organic and Biodynamically Grown Grapes.
This vintage of our Estate selection La Bienvenue comes from the eastern block of our vineyards in the front of the winery and is a blend of the Calera, LT, 23 and 828 clonal selections. The 23 and 828 clones were harvested the first week of September and were whole cluster fermented, allowing darker colors and deeper flavors to develop. The Calera and LT clones were harvested slightly later and contributed minerality, spice and depth of character to the finished wine. All were fermented using their native yeasts in open top fermenters with hand punch downs before being bottled.
This Estate Pinot Noir opens with bright fruit aromas of black cherry, blackberry and red currants with notes of earth and sweet spice. Rich with layered flavors of dark chocolate, wild thyme and oak tones and just a touch of tobacco. This is a structured wine with great density and a savory finish.
