2019 Silver Eagle Vineyard Pinot Noir
"A mesmerizing iteration of Pinot Noir from the Silver Eagle Vineyard in the Sonoma Coast. The "hens and chicks" of the Calera Clone give this wine its depth of flavor and texture. I am so impressed with this wine's dark fruit character, forest floor notes and spice. It is an honor to make wine from this Ulises Valdez vineyard" Helen Keplinger
The 2019 vintage was a glorious, cool year, beginning with copious spring rains which brought us beautiful, healthy canopies. The vintage was reminiscent of the stunning 2018, yet the wines have their own hallmark of vibrant freshness, terrific intensity, bright acidity, silky entries, and long, driven finishes. Pinot and Chardonnay triumphed in this vintage. There is much to love about the wines from this beautiful vintage.
