As a favorite of top sommeliers searching for the rarest jewels of the Sonoma Coast, the 2018 Sea View Ridge Pinot Meunier’s enticing flavor profile of macerated cherries, red berries and baking spices, combined with bright natural acidity, makes it a natural fit for fine dining
With mild temperatures leading to a long growing season and a surprise-free harvest, the 2018 vintage can only be described as idyllic. Alternating spells of cool and warm weather during bloom led to varying berry sizes, perfect for developing complexity in Pinot Noir & Chardonnay. Morning fog, afternoon sunshine and a lack of heat spikes throughout the summer allowed for a long ripening period that developed fruit with excellent natural acidity and beautiful flavors.
Sourced entirely from our organic and biodynamically farmed Sea View Ridge Vineyard. Give the extremes of this site,including elevations of 1,400 to 1,875 feet, each small block ripens at its own pace. e soils on the ridgetops are shallow and rocky with a mix of volcanic soils in the lower blocks and broken sandstone and shale higher up which naturally restrains yields. is Pinot Meunier was sourced exclusively from Block 19, where the slope is so steep that the vines are terraced and soils are shallow, rocky and heavily influenced by volcanic intrusions and high iron content. Planted in 1998, these Pinot Meunier vines produce fruit with layers of complexity and wines with exceptional concentration and natural acidity.
