2017 Cuvée Eva Marie Pinot Noir

2017 Cuvée Eva Marie Pinot Noir

Aptly nicknamed the "belle of the ball," the Cuvée Eva Marie is a case study in elegance. To craft this precious wine, we select the finest barrels from our organically farmed One Sky Vineyard, situated high above the clouds of Sonoma Valley. The result is a cerebral expression of Sonoma Mountain and a true testament to the vintage. The 2017 is balanced with notes of sweet raspberries, toasted vanilla bean and fresh violets. Known for its silky tannins, this Pinot Noir continues to wow us year after year.

Vintage
2017 was a vintage we will remember for a long time. After years of drought, we enjoyed a winter with record rainfall. Mother Nature was active, filling up dams and saturating soils while cleaning out salts that built up over time. Temperatures were cool, contributing to ideal fruit set and the season was on track for typical growth until heat waves arrived at the end of August into September. We picked some Pinot Noir prior to the heat spikes and gave the remaining vines water to let them develop further. While compressed into smaller picking windows, the grapes were perfectly developed and fermentation was steady. Thankfully, all our grapes were picked and wine was in barrel by the time the wildfires in Sonoma and Napa devastated nearby areas. Our vineyards were threatened but ultimately saved with the brave work of first responders. We are forever grateful for those who put themselves in harm's way to help save our livelihoods and for our good fortune during this atypical vintage.
