2017 Pinot Noir

Malk Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017

Release Date: April 2019

The 2017 Malk Family Pinot Noir shows an abundance of fruit-berry qualities. The traditional fresh strawberry and raspberry, but also darker fruit, like black cherry and even plumb. The fruit qualities are balanced by aromas of soft spice, cedar, and fresh earth. On the palate, the wine is expansive and delicious, but maintains elegant focus with appropriate structure and texture. This is a great example of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir that is varietal in every way as well as an expression of the Sonoma Coast appellation.
