Brick & Mortar Nouveau 2019 Magnum
West Block is located in a cool, wind-blown area of Petaluma in the Sonoma Coast AVA. Planted in the early-90’s to the Joseph Phelps clone of Syrah, this vineyard block is oriented east-west allowing even ripening during the long, extended growing season. The close proximity to the San Pablo Bay create a maritime climate that further accentuates the cool climate for Petaluma. The soils are derived from decomposed sandstone and shale, adding intense structure and complexity to our Sonoma Coast Nouveau.
Our 2019 Sonoma Coast Nouveau is comprised of 51% Syrah from West Block in Petaluma Gap and 49% Pinot Noir from Home Block in Sonoma Coast. Produced by way of a ten day carbonic maceration, this wine has a vivacious intensity on the nose and lively fresh palate: juicy peppered strawberry, ripe plum, and fresh violet, overlaid with notes of bay laurel, juniper and lavender. We love to drink this wine slightly chilled and pair it with smoked meats, charcuterie or hot smoked salmon.
