2019 Pinot Noir
Hawk Hill Vineyard
Although I’ve bottled Pinot noir from Hawk Hill vineyard in 2005, 2007 and 2018, this is the first wine to carry the vineyard designation and is 100% from this famous vineyard. It is all I want in a pinot noir, delicate yet intense, aromatics of rose petals and red cherry, sweet fruit but not sweet. Pinot at its best is a wine of contradictions, but above all it must be enjoyable. Sonoma Coast is one of the best places to really allow the grape to shine and this vineyard is clearly in the top group. Drink now and over the next 5 years and I highly recommend a large bowl glass to allow for full enjoyment of the incredible aromatics. It goes particularly well with salmon and chicken dishes.
