2017 CIX Estate Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Our first ever Estate Pinot Noir, the CIX is Grand Cru Aubert.  This Pinot is our most reminiscent of red Burgundy.  This cooler site in Forestville creates an ethereal, delicate, and elegant wine.

Mark Aubert’s Tasting Notes

The white volcanic ash soils of our CIX Estate Vineyard give this Pinot Noir its signature mineral perfume and distinct sense of place. The 2017 beautifully combines elegance and depth. Enticing aromas of red raspberries, warm cherry compote, and orange spiced tea comingle with hints of dried rose petals and a bouquet garni of thyme sprigs, tarragon, and bay leaf. The tannins are ripe and refined, integrating seamlessly to a long, pure finish. Suggested drinking window is 2020 through 2032.
