2019 Proem No. 3 Pinot Noir

Winemaker Notes A wine fully representative of Pastorale Vineyard’s purity of character. The 2019 possesses a vibrant elegance from entry to finish, highlighting ripe strawberry, raspberry, floral violet, and black pepper nuance. There is a rustic intensity throughout the palate with dancing acidity and a seamless finish.

Winemaking Data Block 201 from our Pastorale Vineyard, planted to 100% clone 777, 36% whole cluster inclusion. Aged for 15 months in 55% new French oak and 45% used French oak barrels. A one hour decanting is suggested before enjoyment, or add to your cellar for 10-15 years.

Vintage Notes In 2019, bud break occurred around the same time as 2018 but was delayed compared to our historical averages due to cold, saturated soils from the wet winter, particularly in February. Cool weather continued throughout spring with an unusual amount of rainfall which delayed bloom in some areas. Canopy management was key in 2019 due to vigorous growth and moderate temperatures. July was cooler than average, but August and September warmed to push ripening ahead. In 2019, the quality of Pinot Noir from our Sonoma Coast estate was excellent with well-developed flavors, naturally fresh acidity and superb balance.

Reviews 99 Points - James Suckling
Intense and spicy on the nose, with savory notes of dark cherries, blueberries, black olives, toffee, oyster shells, porcini mushrooms, chocolate orange and sweet tobacco. This is insanely delicious with spicy, polished layers of berry fruit and earthy undertones. Ultra-fine, silky tannins. Medium body. Some coffee and mocha notes on the long, focused finish. Fruit from Ski Slope Block. Try from 2025. -May 2022
