Located on the Sonoma Coast, on the eastern slope (Côte) of the second ridge from the Pacific Ocean, this unique hillside vineyard (Côteau) benefits from the cool maritime breeze and the mild and sunny mountain climate. The site’s natural conditions are ideal for growing excellent Pinot Noir in the Goldridge soil. Handcrafted using classical Burgundian winemaking techniques, this wine is a tribute to the Nobles family that has been farming this land for four generations. Very intense kirsch and graphite flavours with earthy notes, rich, round and seamless with a very fruity lingering finish. Will age gracefully for a decade.
“This awesome Pinot Noir is a tribute to Morlet’s brilliance.”
Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate, December 2014
