2018 Failla Pinot Noir Occidental Ridge Vineyard
The 2018 Pinot Noir Occidental Ridge Vineyard is a magnificent, head spinning wine. Inky dark fruit, violet, plum, licorice, hard candy, mint and sweet spice give the 2018 striking aromatic nuance, but it is the wine’s mid-palate depth and unctuous richness that stand out most. Even with all of its overtness and plushness, the 2018 remains light on its fee. That, in essence, is the magic of the Sonoma Coast – the way on which the wines feel ripe but not heavy.
