2019 PINOT NOIR SONOMA COUNTY
Our vineyard selection for the Sonoma County Pinot has continued to improve over the years. We source from select vineyards including parts of our Single Vineyard program, and the final blend includes 10 different clonal selections. This is the most important wine in the Banshee lineup, and we treat it as such. VARIETAL COMPOSITION 100% Pinot Noir
Handpicked and destemmed, fruit was fermented in small, stainless steel fermenters at cool temperatures for an average of 21 days. Aged for 9 months in 25% new French oak–Cavin, Rousseau, Remond, Dargaud, Francois Freres & Jaegle barrels.
An exciting, yet friendly wine, bursting at the seams with aromas of macerated tart cherries, pomegranate and notes of earth of pine. The flavors combine both sweet and tart with a fruit driven front palate and very subtle oak influence. The finish is bright, slightly herbal, and delicate making this an excellent food wine, as well as a charming drinking experience by itself.
