Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2019

Working with an array of vineyards from the foggy climes of the Sonoma Coast, Tilth’s Pinot Noir marries purity, elegance, and silky texture for a pitch perfect example of the variety. 

Vineyard

Grapes are sourced largely from the Tina Marie Vineyard, situated on southwest facing slopes. The remaining wine is sourced from the Sonoma Stage Vineyard and Riddle Vineyard.

Winemaking

Every vineyard was fermented separately with native yeasts in small open-top fermenters. About 30% whole clusters were used across the board. After two-three weeks of one-two punchdowns a day we drained the ferments to 20% new French oak and aged the wine for ten months before bottling.

Tasting Notes

“Bing cherry, kirsch, and rose petals fill the nose. The palate is graceful with fresh red fruits and a subtle spice that comes from the whole clusters.” – Jason Driscoll, Winemaker

Suggested Food Pairing

An incredibly versatile Pinot Noir, this pairs equally well with pork roasts, rotisserie chicken, grilled salmon, and cheeses.

Zinfandel

California

Tilth California Zinfandel highlights the grace and vibrancy of its 50 to 100 year old vines in sandy soils. Del Barba Vineyard in Contra Costa County and Cherryhouse vineyard in Lodi demonstrate the quality potential of these often overlooked regions.

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

Rutherford, Napa Valley, California

Tilth’s first foray into Napa Valley Cabernet is exactly on point. Showing all of the dark fruit and floral characteristics one would expect and knit together with velvety tannin structure, this wine is emblematic of the approachable Tilth style while remaining true the vineyard source.

Sauvignon Blanc

Napa Valley

In 2015, Jason was offered the opportunity to take over the Burkett Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc in Saint Helena. As his first wine under Tilth, it routinely expresses the fragrant and delicate nature of its source and the warmth and generosity of its maker.

Napa Chardonnay

Napa, California

A surprisingly fresh style of Chardonnay from the southeastern corner of Napa, this wine balances its foggy influence with the characteristic warmth of California.
