2016 Mardikian Estate Pinot Noir

Sonoma Coast

Planted in 2008 to a careful selection of 8 clones and 2 rootstocks chosen to offer a distinct level of flavor and complexity and intrigue.  Steep slopes of well drained, fine samdy loam are often shrouded in a maritime blanket of fog that begins to burn off just about noon, which allows for extended hang time and builds in extra complexity to the wines.

The Mardikian Estate is not only a standout, it is our flagship; I approach each wine with precision - the vineyard brings all the complexity and the oak should simply be the background and support the fruit, not take the lead role.  On this vintage, delicate aromas of perfumed rose petal and black cherry lift from the glass and are met with hints of smoky oak.  There is energy and tension on the palate as black fruits and notes of grilled meats envelop well-structured and elegant tannins.  In tandem, elements of Bing cherry and bergamot deliver a subtle acidity that provides the backbone to complete the wine.
