Zio Tony Ranch Pinot Noir 2017

Varietal

Pinot Noir

Growing Year Info

The growing season of 2017 stayed wet with spring rains and cooler temperatures, providing moist soil reserves through the summer. The summer had stretches of hot days throughout, especially over the Labor Day weekend, when harvest was at its peak. We were very lucky in October 2017 that the Tubbs Fire, which burned from Calistoga to Santa Rosa, stopped 1.5 miles from our properties. Across Sonoma County as well as in our vineyards, 95% of all wine grapes were already harvested and were not affected by the smoke from these devastating fires.

Tasting Notes

Our 2017 Zio Tony Ranch Pinot Noir has a sweet spicy nose with aromas of cherry, raspberry, and sweet leather. This wine is bright and lively on the palate with flavors of red cherry, pomegranate, and hints of orange peel in the vibrant finish.
