This first release from BloodRoot offers all that and then some. Utilizing different fruit sources mostly throughout Sonoma County (but also neighboring counties of Marin and Mendocino), the BloodRoot winemakers created a Pinot Noir blend that effortlessly melds cool, coastal Pinot elegance with the velvety polish of culty high-end Pinot producers.
The 2018 Pinot Noir comes from a relatively cool vintage. Twelve different vineyard sites were used to create this Sonoma County Pinot Noir. Harvest dates ranged from as early as September 3 all the way until October 10, which is very late for Pinot. The wine was fermented in small open top vessels with hand punch downs daily.
Oak: Aged for 16 months in French Oak (20% new)
