James MacPhail's Notes
The 2021 wine growing season was marked by ideal weather conditions, resulting in exceptional grape quality. This wine continues to embody the misty and cool Sonoma Coast, with just a hint of creaminess balancing the bracing acidity. On the nose, aromas of Asian pear, white peach, and zesty lemon citrus. The palate exhibits rich flavors of Gravenstein apple, stone fruit, and Meyer lemon, providing a harmonious balance of acidity and fruit sweetness.

- Sonoma Coast
Stretching from the rugged coastline in the north to former dairy land in the south, the Sonoma Coast AVA spans the length of Sonoma County. Wind, fog, and a salty Pacific Ocean fog create a rugged, cool-climate home for some of Sonoma’s most celebrated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, heralded for their concentrated fruit flavors, notable balance, and complexity.Explore Vineyard
