2021 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. The 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

2021 UV-SL Pinot Noir is dense, brooding, and inky. Mulberry, black cherry compote, and hoisin sit atop a resinous herbal character indicative of the chapparal terroir delimiting the vineyard site. This wine is the epitome of balance between power and vibrant minerality. Layers of fine-grained tannin and bright acidity form a chiseled structure that supports the ultra-concentrated flavor and aroma. Inviting now, this wine will continue to reveal its greatness for many years to come. Suggested drinking window is 2024 through 2040.
