"Wines that offer excellent quality at a price above our Best Buy range, or a wine at any price with unique qualities that merit special attention."
- Wine Enthusiast Magazine
We make only 44 barrels of FORAGER Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir and it delivers depth, nuance and pure enjoyment. Bright bing cherry, modest new French oak, velvety, balanced, it is an absolute show-stopper. New package showcases a “foraging” art label, lighter weight recycled glass bottle, natural cork closure, recycled paper and compostable ink.
- Our FORAGER Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir illustrates that careful, experienced growing, selection, blending and maturation of Pinot Noir lots grown in diverse coastal locations can deliver delicious flavor and interest.
- Excellent low-yielding sites, classic low-impact winemaking techniques and careful maturation in French oak capture the typicity of these sites - and the purity of this world-class red grape variety.
- Our new label features original art by the late Helen Steele, renown northern California artist. We interpret her piece as a family slowly foraging along the Sonoma coastline, perhaps finding mussels, clams, seaweed and other bounty from the sea.
