Lioco 'Lejano' Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir


From the producer: "Lejano translates to "far away or distant" which accurately characterizes the remote Sonoma Coast vineyards we source for this wine. These sites are situated from between 5-9 miles from the Pacific Ocean on a series of ridgelines at 500-700ft  - placing them at or just above the fog line. Vines planted in the 1990s  on sandier soils full of seashells. The extreme microclimate mandates a willingness to work with extremely low yields. Aged for 10 mths in used French oak. Bottled without fining or filtration. 

Aroma: fresh fig, Bing cherry, crushed graphite

Flavor: Rhubarb, baking spice, black raspberry 

Food pairings: roasted pork loin, wild salmon burger,
