2015 Banshee Morning Light Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
The wine is bright, ebullient and full of both red and darker berry flavors. It also possesses a subtle vanilla note, orange peel and a faintly creamy texture. Like all our Pinots, it is incredibly versatile with food. King Salmon season is here and that along with some roasted fingerlings would be fine companion.
100% French oak; 25% new, 50% 1-year, 25% Neutral
Occasionally, as we find ourselves in the depths of blending sessions for our Marine Layer Pinot, we discover other permutations that are also enjoyable. While not the exact expression we were seeking, these catch our attention enough that we say, “Our wine club members would think this is pretty tasty! We should bottle it for them.”
Blended from many of the same Sonoma Coast lots as Marine Layer, this is like the remix version of the hit song. We utilized certain barrels of Rice-Spivak, Thorn Ridge and Hellenthal vineyards in this blend.
