Winemaking Notes: The Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir fruit is a blend of Pommard and Dijon clones from carefully selected vineyards within the region. All grapes are picked by hand at night and early mornings to keep the fruit at optimal temperatures. The fruit is then destemmed into bins and placed into open top fermenters. The fruit is cold soaked for 3 days prior to initiating fermentation. Once fermentation begins, each tank is punched down two to three times per day to maintain consistent contact between the must and pommace throughout fermentation. Once fermented dry, the wine is racked to barrels for completion of malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged 10 months in 100% French oak of which 20% is new.

Tasting Notes: The Sean Minor Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is medium-bodied with plum, blueberry and strawberry nuances. On entry, the wine displays bright cherry and berry flavors with earthy and sweet oak notes throughout the midpalate. The spicy finish lingers on the palate framed by fresh fruit and silky round tannins.
