"The stunning 2021 WALT ‘Bob’s Ranch’ Pinot Noir is a masterclass by this winemaking team. This Sonoma Coast AVA property has a wide range of Pinot Noir selections and is in close proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Stored in roughly 30% new French oak, this shows off dense blackberry and black cherry notes on the nose with shades of cola. Very seamless on the mouth, this effortlessly glides throughout the drinking experience. The salty and savory aspects, as well as the length, all add to the enjoyment."

"This is packed with dark cherry, plum and blackberry compote notes that have good tension and energy, thanks to nicely embedded racy acidity. Reveals a gloss of toast, anise and licorice on the finish, but this is light-handed and lets the fruit play out nicely."

Deep aromas of ripe blackberry, shaved dark chocolate, and wet stone characterize the serious profile of the 2021 vintage of Bob's Ranch. Flavors of dark plum, black tea and toasted oak are layered on the seamless, vivid palate. Dynamic, focused and perfectly balanced with acidity, the wine builds to a long finish.

This wine hails from our best vineyard blocks at Bob’s Ranch each year.

Vintage NotesThe alluring 2021 vintage is remarkable for its low yields, which resulted in an extra degree of concentration in our wines. In a second year of drought, the vines grew quickly in the warm spring weather while our team judiciously managed watering block by block. By summer, the vines had set a lighter than average crop, and cooler weather in August allowed time for vineyard passes to finetune the fruit load and manage the canopy. After a smooth harvest season, we are excited about the flavor-packed 2021's.
