Failla - Pinot Noir - Sonoma Coast

About This Item

Overview: The vineyards represented in this bottling are a stellar depiction of quality farming, mature vines, and the distinct terroir of cool climates that are graced with the soils, fog, and ocean influence that bring Pinot Noir to life. Roughly 25% of the grapes used in this bottling are estate grown and farmed.

Tasting Notes: Polished, supple and just plain delicious. A cabernet sauvignon blended with malbec, cab franc, merlot, and petit verdot for a gorgeous wine of lovely depth and power. It shows a dense blue-purple color as well as a showy bouquet of blackberries, pencil lead, cedar, stone, sweet oak and mineral. On the palate it leads with pretty, bright, blue and black fruits, mocha, herbs and fine chewy tannins. As always with this wine, a little decantation will help it open, but rest assured it will develop for many years.

Pairing: Duck, goose, and game birds

Points: 90, Wine Enthusiast

Format/ABV: 750 ml/13.5%
