2009 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast – Morris Ranch

3

We worked hard on finding a vineyard that is not only in the right location in the Petaluma Gap but also one that has the right mix of clones and farming practices. This Morris Ranch Pinot Noir is lower in alcohol and higher in acid than most California Pinot Noir’s. It is food friendly and will age nicely in the cellar for five to eight years.
