2019 Laguna Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
Sonoma Coast on a label can be misleading. Is it truly from a coastal zone or one 30+ miles from the Pacific? Fear not: if you are looking for coastal character in Pinot Noir, you will be right at home here. This 2019 Laguna comes from our boho friend Steven Moore's Teac Mor Vineyard. This regeneratively farmed vineyard humming with biodynamic life, sits 11-miles from ocean in the fog-catching Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed. You don't come here looking for fruit-bombs. You come here for crunchy Pinot bespoke of freshly-picked coastal berries and damp forest floor. From the universally lauded 2019 vintage, this wine provides enough umami-driven complexity to please even your jaded, natural-wine loving friends in Silverlake.
