Akane Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2015

“The 2015 vintage offered excellent growing conditions. A mild winter and spring compounded with almost no rain contributed to early ripening, low to moderate yields and highly concentrated grapes resulting in exceptional quality. 2015 is one of the earliest vintages we’ve seen in over a decade, but it will also go down as one of the best.

Bright cranberry in color, the nose is fragrant with red cherries, beech wood and bramble fruit. The palate is bright and fresh due to the high acidity and leans to cola, sandalwood, pumpkin seed and dried plums.” Winemaker’s notes
