Bella Vigna Vertical

Our 'Bella Vigna' Pinot Noir from the rugged and wildly beautiful Sonoma Coast is truly a wine for the ages. This limited library vertical includes the 2009, 2011, + 2012 vintages.

Winemakers Vineyard Notes: Located on the southwest edge of Sebastopol this steeply-sloped, southeasterly facing hillside is planted half in Swan clones and half in 777 clones. Morning fog, warm midday sun, cool afternoon breezes, and Goldridge Loams soils all contribute to a world-class site for growing Pinot Noir. Sustainably farmed.

Winemakers Tasting Notes: All three vintages are stainless steel fermented, 100% French oak-aged in 35% new oak barrels. Bottled unfined, unfiltered. The 2009 brought us back to nature, with notes of wild strawberries, forest floor, and cedar. The 2011 vintage gave us a beautiful wine that is darker in color than in years past. A very diverse nose of spicy rhubarb, clove, red meats and what we like to call animale. The 2012 gives a really diverse nose of spicy rhubarb, wild strawberry jam, and clove that finishes long with Bing cherries, crushed mint candies, and hints of white pepper.
