The 2017 Manzanita Pinot Noir has a perfumed nose of black and bing cherry, carob, orange oil, bay leaves, baking spices, white pepper, and just a hint of leather. The palate begins with a very silky entry opening to a seamless mouthfeel with flavors of morello cherry, orange zest, sage, and cedar which persist through the long finish. Drinking beautifully now, this wine will age well in the near term.
Vintage Notes: Cooler, even season without much in the way of heat spikes or cold snaps. Canopies were healthy, full, and crop set was balanced. An easy growing vintage that made really beautiful wines of terrific balance, intensity, and texture. Readily accessible upon release but will also age well. The grapes were harvested from a two acre saddle, west of Santa Rosa. Goldridge soils, organically farmed by the Ulises Valdez Family
