Winemaker Tasting Notes: The deep ruby color of the 2018 Dierke Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir hints at what is to come. Opening with ripe red cherry, dried cranberry, and dusty raspberry, the bright fruit ushers in a brooding, structured intensity. An earthy forest floor character mingles with savory notes of cinnamon, cola nut, tobacco leaf, and a hint of dark chocolate. A touch of flint minerality reveals itself alongside delicate lilacs balanced by grippy tannins. Thoroughly charismatic in its youth, the 2018 Dierke will continue to gracefully reveal its many layers for those patient enough to learn its secrets.
Varietal: Pinot Noir.
