2018 Price Family Estates Pinot Noir

2018 Price Family Estates Pinot Noir

The Price Family Estates Pinot Noir is what we like to call our winemakers’ wine. Selecting the best grapes from each of our estate vineyards, this pinot noir expresses the vintage and the diversity of Sonoma Coast through Bob and Ryan’s unique lens. We highlight the strengths of vineyards such as Walala, Durell, and Gap’s Crown, leading to a cohesive and ambrosial illustration of our iconic properties. The 2018 is lively on the palate - raspberry and rhubarb compote are coupled with black cherry. A mild barrel toast complements the fruit perfectly, with a long, luscious finish.

Vintage
2018 was one of those magical years. With a mild spring, the early growing season plodded along at a relatively normal pace. Once the berries set, we knew we had a healthy and full crop. So full, in fact, we did a number of fruit-thinning passes to reduce load on the vines. Even with this, we were happy to see an above-average harvest with superb quality. We started picking in earnest after Labor Day, with cool, fall weather that allowed us to transfer the grapes in a calm and measured pace. All in all, 2018 will go down as a year to remember, with wines of true depth and power.
