2018 Mirama Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Our 2018 Mirama Pinot Noir is a collection of three of our finest Sonoma Coast vineyard sites blended together to capture the essence of coastal influenced, cool-climate Pinot. These vineyards all have variations on the Goldridge soil series, generally a fine textured and well-drained type that is derived from an ancient inland sea that emptied into the Pacific 5 million years ago. Cool oceanic influence in the Sonoma Coast allows for slow flavor development and tends to produce Pinot Noirs with fine structural elements and elegance.
This wine aged for 20 months in mostly neutral French Oak barrels with only 20% being new. The fruit was 85% de-stemmed and fermented in small two-ton open top fermentersSensual, silky, aromatically enthralling Pinot that mixes exotic spice notes with blueberry and fresh maitake mushroom notes.
