Terra de Promissio
The fourth year of continuous drought caught up with many vineyards, shrinking yields and causing water stress in many vines. Tiny clusters sometimes clocked in at 10% the weight of normal. However, the natural consequence of such a low yield is an amazing concentration of flavors.
Known as “The Land of Promise”, Terra de Promissio has an ideal terroir for Pinot noir. A truly delicious example of what the Sonoma Coast can produce. Strawberry fruit, spice and floral notes are just the beginning. Bold, dark cherry rides consistently on the palate with very balanced tannins that give an almost white pepper component to the wine. Great, subtle acidity is balanced by smooth vanilla and baking spice.
