A lush ripe Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir produced by fourth generation California grape growers. This dual role of grower and winemaker is ideal, because the grapes can be farmed in a manner that produces the most expressive style of wine. And, as no capital is invested buying grapes, it means the finished wine brings superior value as is most certainly the case for this Tarkettle Road 2011. The wine was aged for 13 months in select oak barrels and shows a seamlessly quality with beautiful perfume and lush supple fruit. Strawberry, black cherry, woodsmoke and spice all play on the palate and the finish lingers with spices and vanilla. A super value from an elite region.
