2016 UV-SL Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Our most masculine Pinot Noir, the UV-SL is opulent in color, reflecting a tangible fullness across the palate. ┬áThe vineyard’s proximity to the ocean is deceptive, as the notably warm climate allows the grapes to reach our optimal ripeness.

Mark Aubert’s Tasting Notes

Deep ruby with purple hues, the 2016 UV-SL is a Pinot Noir of power and opulence. Sous bois aromas intertwine with lush layers of ripe blueberries, blackberries and nuanced notes of plum, black fig, and tamarind. The textured palate is loaded with fruit and supported by a backbone of crystalline tannin and perfectly integrated acidity, promising a long life ahead. Suggested drinking window is 2019 through 2030.
