Winemaker Tasting Notes

Malk Sonoma Coast
Pinot Noir

Release Date: February 2018

The 2016 Malk Family Vineyards Pinot Noir has exceptional varietal character. It displays youthful expressions of fresh berries — ripe strawberry and wild raspberry — as well as offering the unique nuances of the copse of the Sonoma Coast: fresh earth, fern, and forest floor. The palate is vibrant and lively but maintains a wonderful balance of structure, spice, and texture. The finish is perfectly smooth and clean. One of the best qualities of this wine is the promise of the future: all of the attributes mentioned will grow and evolve allowing this wine to be enjoyed now as well as rewarding in the future.
