2020 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

PRODUCTION NOTES

The severe lack of rain at the end of 2020 led to very weak shoot growth and low crop yields in 2021. This will continue to affect the vines in 2022. All that aside, the fires that started August 18th had the largest impact on the 2020 growing season. On August 21st the fires reached the ridge line about 1000 yards behind our estate vineyards.

In 2020 the only red grapes we harvested were the Pinot Noir
grapes from our Platt Vineyard. Platt is all the way out in Bodega and only about 2.5 miles from the ocean. The prevailing winds blow out of the Northwest and that kept most of the smoke inland, and away from Platt. Our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is typically a blend of two or three different vineyards, but in 2020 it is 100% from Platt.

 

TASTING NOTES

The 2020 Flanagan Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has a pretty nose with a hint of cinnamon spice, black fruits, and limestone. On the palate the wine has Pomegranate, Cranberry, and wet rock. It is a
complex wine and one I really enjoy.

Our wine making is focused on balance and allowing the sites and the vintage to express themselves. The result is a wine that is delightful to drink now that will also age gracefully for many years.

224 cases produced.

The Sonoma Coast AVA is becoming known as the top source for cool climate Pinot Noir. Our Pinot Noir is founded in letting each site and each vintage express itself. We do not have a dogmatic approach to winemaking. Pinot Noir, more than any other grape variety, is made in the vineyard.
