BloodRoot 2018 Pinot Noir, Sonoma County, California, USA

First release from *undisclosed* winemakers!
Winemaker: Undisclosed
Farming: Sustainable 
Varieties: Pinot Noir
Terroir: Utilizing different fruit sources mostly throughout Sonoma County (but also neighboring counties of Marin and Mendocino), the BloodRoot winemakers created a Pinot Noir blend that effortlessly melds cool, coastal Pinot elegance with the velvety polish of culty high-end Pinot producers. Twelve different vineyard sites were used to create this Sonoma County Pinot Noir. Harvest dates ranged from as early as September 3 all the way until October 10, which is very late for Pinot, but this was a cool growing season.
Fermentation:  The wine was fermented in small open top vessels with hand punch downs daily.
Aging: 16 months in 20% new French Oak
93 points. Wine Enthusiast Magazine, August 2020:  This wine is a secret collaboration between several winemakers with great vineyard sourcing who have come together here to make a masterful, value-minded blend. The majority of the grapes come from Russian River Valley, with others from Sonoma Coast, Marin, Anderson Valley and Bennett Valley. Tea, earth, stone and herb tones enliven a core of cranberry and rhubarb, offering length and depth. The tannins are velvety smooth and seductive. –V.B.
