Tasting through the 2011 wines, I was extremely happy with how both the chardonnay and pinot noir have turned out.
The chardonnay has a great mix of lemon-lime, pineapple, and stony minerality. The pinot noir has this exciting, subtle blue
fruit character, that I rarely taste in this variety, with undertones of clove, cinnamon, and other baking spices. It's
a smooth but intense look at Sonoma Coast pinot.
I'm getting ready to bottle up the 2011s, and I'll put up the link for pre-orders soon.
