Schug Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2019
The microclimates of the Sonoma Coast AVA include the western portion of Carneros and the Petaluma Gap. The cool climate and low yield of these vineyards allow Pinot Noir grapes to mature slowly while retaining their natural acidity, resulting in a balanced wine with ripe flavors, silky texture and crisp acidity. Aged primarily in large oak casks and “neutral” older barrels, this wine exhibits flavors of cherries, strawberries and spice, with a lively finish that is an ideal accompaniment to grilled fish and fowl or barbecued meats.
"Here exists a delicate balance of earth and wild cherry. Sassafras enters on a cedar stage, while nutmeg and underbrush take a savory bow." -92pts, Tasting Panel
