SOIXANTE ET ONZE
2017 PINOT NOIR, SONOMA COAST
Forty-nine year old, dry farmed vines planted in sandy loam soil. The robust Martini heritage selection of Pinot Noir creates an old world fashioned yet new world expressive wine.
A flashy garnet color, the 2017 Soixante et Onze is an intriguing and layered Pinot Noir. Its bold aromatics unfurl notes of crushed pomegranate, green tea, and rose petals. The structured mid-palate (from the seventy-five percent whole cluster stem inclusion) is highlighted by light strawberry, pine needles, and pitted cherry accents. Ample acidity elevates the coating finish with elements of sandalwood, tangerine skin, and incense.
