2017 Stewart Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
From 2 impressive vineyards in the Petaluma Gap, this Pinot Noir opens with aromatics of dried fig, strawberry, and violet tea. The palate is plush, full, and smooth from start to finish, with fleshy acid lining the vibrant fruit flavors. Fresh raspberries and lightly toasted French oak are complimented by the slightest hint of orange peel on the finish.
- Sunchase Vineyard and Sonoma Stage in the Petaluma Gap
