2018 Banshee Morning Light Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
Hints of dried rose petal and black pepper lead to an inviting, mediumbodied pinot noir. Bright flavors of crunchy red apple touched with Asian spice, herbs and a hint of whisky barrel and molasses with silky, smooth tannins. This wine has plenty of personality and would love to be served with a slight chill on a warm summer afternoon
100% Pinot Noir
Hand harvested on September 12th, 2018 and hand sorted. Native yeast fermentation in small open top vats over the course of 24 days with gentle manual punch-downs 1-2 times per day. Pressed at dryness. Aging for 15 months in French oak, 28% new – Cavin, Francois Freres and Rousseau barrels.
Our Morning Light Pinot Noir is a gorgeous blend of Sonoma Coast vineyards that lend those awesome marine influences and wild character we love in our pinot noirs. Paired with the intense mountain fruit from the volcanic soils of Sullivan Vineyard, you truly get the best of both worlds. A beautifully balanced pinot noir with lush fruit and fine tannins.
