Akane Pinot Noir Sonoma County

This wine is a blend of two Sonoma Carneros vineyards. Both vineyards are planted on a gentle slope descending to the San Pablo Bay. The buffering effect from that large body of water creates a wonderfully cool climate for growing Pinot Noir. The cold winds and bright days of Carneros imbue this wine with a vibrant fruit unlike any other AVA.

Vintage- The 2016 vintage offered excellent growing conditions. A mild winter and spring compounded with gentle rainfall contributed to early ripening, low to moderate yields and highly concentrated grapes resulting in exceptional quality.
