2011 Silver Eagle Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
This Pinot noir is a blend of multiple clones unique to this site, including a specialized Vosne-Romanee clone, Calera, and Pommard. Cool, coastal breezes and fog help control yields for excellent balance and concentration. This wine is bright ruby-red with a sultry aroma that lures you in immediately, teasing you with what you are about to taste. It has depth and complexity, with aromas of red and blue fruit, Asian spices and a touch of earth. This is a powerful and energetic Pinot with great structure and balance.
