The aromas on the 2018 Aquinas Pinot Noir really jump from the glass with perfumed cranberry, red cherry, wild ﬂoral and warm cardamom spice notes. The wine is inviting with an elegant, supple and rich, mouthcoating texture. Juicy fruit ﬂavors alongside black tea and earthy mushroom notes add additional layers of complexity. The wine is well-structured and is balanced by a strong line of bright acidity leaving a lingering, ﬂavorful ﬁnish.
APPELLATION: NORTH COAST
For the 2018 bottling, we have stayed in the very cool climate regions of the North Coast appellation. The majority of the fruit for this wine comes from the Oak Meadows Vineyard in Russian River Valley. This is the core of the blend and the cool climate stamp on the fruit from this region is expressive with loads of cranberry and cherry fruit aromas and ﬂavors. In addition to the Russian River Valley, we bring Pinot Noir grown in Mendocino County on the Pauli Ranch vineyard. We ﬁnd this fruit to be of outstanding quality with rich and ﬂavorful, juicy fruit. The ﬁnal result is a wine with depth, complexity and beautiful fruit ﬂavors and concentration coming from some of the most highly respected Pinot Noir growing regions in California.
