2020 Pinot Noir
Grown from a vineyard perched on the spine of Atlas Peak, this former mountain riverbed is the perfect home for producing exceptional fruit. The Pinot Noir here thrives above the fog line, surrounded by the cool breezes that meander through Foss Valley, while being rooted in an underbelly of prehistoric river rock and stone that have become a signature trait of Blue Oak over the years. An intoxicating nose of Bing cherries, spiced rhubarb, lilacs, Shiitake mushrooms, wet stones, and sandalwood front an energetic palate rich in crunchy red berries, fresh plums, energetic florals, and crimson-drenched minerality. Inviting notes of baking spice and crushed stones add nuance to the lush, mouthwatering finish, showcasing an old world personality wrapped in the heartbeat of Pinot Noir’s Napa heritage.
