Cooling Pinot from the Sonoma Coast

2015 Sosie Pinot Noir Spring Hill Vineyard Sonoma Coast

Sosie’s Pinot Noir is sourced from the Spring Hill Vineyard to the west of Petaluma and includes Swan, Calera, and Pommard 5 clones. The fruit is fermented with wild cultures and the wine is handled minimally, with a modest sulfite addition. The color is deep garnet, and the perfume is flowery but with a suggestion of pine; I get raspberry and strawberry and rhubarb but also basil and tarragon and anise hyssop. The flavors continue this theme, a sluice of tart red fruits and a finish that feels mentholated and cooling (but not medicinal). The wine exits in a blaze of red acidity. It’s a refreshing Pinot that pairs well with rich fish, poultry, medium aged cheeses, and gratins.
