2011 Canihan Family Cellars Estate Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast 750ml 2-Pack
This elegant Pinot Noir is made from our dry-farmed vineyard located on the border of the Carneros and Sonoma Coast appellations. You'll find lush aromas of strawberries, raspberries, rose petals and violets followed by a long, rich and velvety finish.
It takes exceptional grapes to make award-winning wine. Our unique terroir, meticulous organic & dry farming practices, along with minimalist winemaking intervention result in exceptional wines.
Lush and jazzy aromas of ripe strawberries, raspberries and rose petals fold into bright cherry fruit and perfumes of dried violets and spice. Wonderfully rich with exemplary balance and the velvety mouth feel of outstanding Pinot Noir.
Vineyard Notes: Our 7.75 acres of Estate Pinot Noir are dryfarmed and certified organic, and lie on the border of Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Our original 3.75 acre vineyard is comprised entirely of French Dijon Clones 115,667 & 777. Our second vineyard, planted in 2005 includes Dijon clones 828, 115, 667 & 777 along with approximately 5% each of Pommard, Wadenswil, Swan & Masson clones. The vineyard experiences the full impact of San Francisco Bay's cooling fog in the summer. Ned Hill & Phil Coturri's biodynamic vineyard management practices along with dry-farming and cane pruning result in small yields (less than 1.5 tons per acre) of the highest quality grapes. The vineyard is certified organic by CCOF.
