2018 Pinot Noir "Signal Ridge Vineyard" Mendocino RidgeCoil Wines
we’ve found a natural balance that takes our collaboration to the next level
To craft a fresh, balanced expression, we fermented the Pinot with one-third whole cluster fruit, macerating for 17 days before aging in one-third new French oak barrels for 10 months.
The balance of brilliant sun and brisk temperatures at Signal Ridge’s 2,642-foot altitude, combined with the complexity of vines grown in low-vigor soils and the mild, even 2018 growing season, gave us a delightful, classic Pinot Noir. As soon as we smelled its elegant strawberry, plum, and raspberry fruit and tasted its undertones of black truffle and red licorice amid silky, seamless tannins, we knew we couldn’t keep this wine to ourselves.
