Hillside Cuvee, Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir – Wine Story

HillsideCuveeSonomaCoast 1000px

Similar to our approach with our Three Sons Cuvee and the Russian River Valley, we hoped to create a signature blend of vineyards to represent the Sonoma Coast. We introduced the Three Sons in 2003, but awaited until 2006 to introduce its Sonoma Coast brother.

For Hillside Cuvee, we sourced vineyards close to the Halleck Vineyard Estate, of similar elevation and character. Our desire was to express our region in a single wine that aggregated the best qualities for which the region is known.

All our other wines are single vineyards. These represent place at a micro level. In making the Hillside Cuvee, we had the creative opportunity to select vineyards that, together, spoke, “Sonoma Coast.”

Hillside Cuvee does not disappoint! This wine leads with red fruits like pomegranate and fresh cranberry, but delivers bright minerality, referencing river stones in a crisp mid- palate. It finishes in white pepper, lingering for many minutes.
