Grand Vent Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019  - Ernest Vineyards
$62.00   750mL
Wind dictates everything at this 15-acre vineyard in Sonoma County. The parcel sits in the mouth of the Petaluma Gap, where a blend of unique terroir, cool climate, and consistent wind yields long hang times that allow flavors to mature slowly and steadily. The majority of the vineyard is Pinot Noir with clones of Pommard 4, Dijon 113, and 667.

A crimson color with intense purple hues. The aromas are reminiscent of black plums and dried roses. A leafy quality followed by other deeper red and black fruits, both fresh and dried. On the palate, a juiciness to the quality of the fruit, accompanied by spice, and herbal notes of wild sage and black peppercorn. The acidity is bright, highlighting the freshness of the fruit. The tannins frame it all without being over the top. The power of the wine comes from its concentration and complexity of flavors.
