2017 SCV Pinot Noir, Salmon Creek Block, 750ml

2017 Pinot Noir
Salmon Creek Block, Sonoma Coast


$50.00   per 750ml bottle


Vineyard Notes
Salmon Creek Block sits at the lower elevation of our Balistreri Vineyard in Freestone. It is three miles inland from the Pacific Ocean and is adjacent to the Salmon Creek. This area is fast proving to be one of the finest growing regions in the world for producing wines that are truly Burgundian in character but possessing the depth of complexity that makes west Sonoma County so special.

Vintage Notes
The 2017 growing season was a bit of a roller-coaster with heavy winter rains leading to vigorous vine growth in spring. Bloom came early, in parallel with an eclectic range of springtime temperatures. Moderate early summer temperatures gave way to several heat waves throughout the summer and into fall, heightening the rate of ripening and flavor development in the grapes, and ushering in a slightly early harvest.

Winemaker Notes
This vineyard block selection from Balistreri Vineyard is planted to Dijon 115, 667 and 777 Clones, plus the Pommard 1 Clone of Pinot Noir. This kind of clonal diversity in one vineyard block becomes a wonderful “blending tool” for our winemakers, allowing for a broad palette of flavors, textures and aromas to be expressed in the finished wine.
