This is an impressive appellation blend, sourcing from the proprietor's Bob's Ranch as well as Gap's Crown Vineyard and others. Earthy compost and forested tea gird a full-bodied concentrated experience highlighted in dried cranberry, raspberry and rhubarb, a leathery hint of sarsaparilla adding creaminess.

Bright garnet in color, La Brisa Pinot Noir opens with aromas of earth, freshly crushed raspberries, and subtle rose. On the palate, cardamom and warm oaky tones are interlaced with deep red currant. This wine features bright minerality and good structure

This blend is predominately from our Bob’s Ranch Estate, with Gap’s Crown and Calesa vineyards completing the blend which features both Dijon and heritage clones. The resulting combination of diverse vineyard sites and clonal variation creates a complex wine with abundant fruit, making it a delicious Sonoma Coast blend.

Vintage NotesThe 2015 growing season started with early bud break followed by a cool spring and moderate summer temperatures. Heatwaves towards the end of the summer resulted in the fruit being picked earlier. Despite the shorter growing season and low yields, the fruit had great color and intensity, creating a fruit forward, richly textured wine.
