2016 Banshee Sullivan Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Mountain
This big, bold Pinot Noir is mouth filling, lush and aromatic, expressing its rugged mountain man roots, with aromatics of strawberry and balsamic glaze. An approachable wine with flavor elements of juicy wild strawberry and savory, meaty undertones. A solid, quaffable Pinot Noir with a lingering finish and structured tannins

The 2016 Sonoma Coast growing season began with a warm, mild winter resulting in an early bud break at the beginning of March. A normal period of bloom and veraison took place in early May and mid-July. Overall, it was cooler compared to the previous three vintages, especially in August and September, allowing for complex aromas and flavors to develop slowly and completely.
