This stunning Pinot Noir from Katy Wilson comes from the famous Coastlands Vineyard, which was planted in 1989 by the Cobb family, overlooking the Pacific Ocean at 900-1,200 feet elevation and has some of the oldest Pinot Noir vines on the Sonoma Coast. The wine itself is fantastic, showing off wonderful red fruit profile along with an earthy character with nuances of fresh sage, mint all connecting beautifully. The palate is elegant and extremely inviting, delivering delicious flavors of red berries, red currants, blood orange and dried herbal undertones which all continue to flow through beautifully into the long finish. The 2017 is already sensational, but it will ultimately benefit from a few years of cellaring and go on to drink marvelously for well for over a decade.
