2020 Lejano Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
> Far Coast Pinot <
Lejano translates to "far away or distant" which accurately describes this vineyard on the far Sonoma Coast near Annapolis. This spectacular site with unobstructed views of the Pacific was a former apple farm and its soils are full of fossilized scallop shells. In the wild 2020 vintage we harvested early, fermented gently, and bottled only the free-run juice. The result? A wine stuffed with red currant, rhubarb, and pink peppercorn aromas and that electric, red crunch we've come to depend on from this zone. We recommend serving the wine with a light chill and pairing it with oil poached tuna, seared duck breast, or roasted Hen-of-the-woods.
