Skyside Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
We believe blending starts in the vineyard. Our goal is to create the best grapes from several diverse areas within the region, allowing us to craft a wine that is vibrant, balanced and complex. For Pinot Noir, we also ensure a diverse array of clones to help showcase the variety including clones 115, 667, 777 and Pommard. This careful combination of clones helps the Skyside Pinot Noir build nuanced and layered aromas, flavors and textures.
Winemaking begins in the vineyard with each block carefully farmed. Once blocks reach optimum ripeness, they are harvested in the cool morning and destemmed to tank. Grapes ferment on skins for 14 to 18 days, separated by vineyard block and pump-over 1-2 two times daily based on taste. Wine ages for 10 months in 15% new French oak. Our 2019 Skyside Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir can be enjoyed now and aged for up to five years.

Beautiful lifted aromas of rose petals, cherry, and hints of earl grey tea and citrus rind. The wine enters the mouth adding subtle fruit and oak spices and finishes with graceful tannins and lingering acidity.
