2018 Mille Freres Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

Mille Freres is our flagship Pinot Noir, based on the magnificent expression of Terra de Promissio terroir in Petaluma, the same source of wine that has gone into a veritable who’s who of Sonoma Coast producers. This vineyard grows compellingly profound, luxurious fruit, providing the gravitas of our Gravenstein bottling and delivers the essential seduction of our magnetic Mille Freres. Harvested at night to preserve freshness and vibrancy, the grapes are carefully transported to open-top fermenters and gently punched down, followed by an undisturbed 14-month-long maturation in 50% new French Oak. Seeing no racking, no fining, and no filtration, this beauty was bottled in Dec 2019. Tasting

Tasting Notes Mille Freres commands attention the way luxury Pinot Noir should, with heavenly red and black fruits, knee-weakening florals, savory yumminess, and an underlying warming spice note, a bit like a glorious Christmas celebration. Richly textured, this wine plays like a symphony on the palate with pure flavors of red berry preserve, sweet fresh herbs, hints of mushroom & licorice, perfectly framed by mouth-coating tannins that remain pliant even in their persistence. Fans of the 2016 vintage character will be especially pleased. This is a chiseled, compelling, and (yes) age-worthy Pinot Noir.
