The Sonoma Coast Rockin’ H Pinot is arguably our sturdiest Pinot; always the first grapes harvested and always ripe even in the coldest years, assured by its western exposure on the banks of the Petaluma River.
There is a foundation of black cherry-like fruit. The wine is faintly scented by the line of eucalyptus trees bordering the vineyard. Add sweetness from a new toasted oak barrel and you have a recipe for the exotic. The wine is still young so give it some time to open up. You might even find it more flavorful the following day.
