Tilton Hill® Estate Pinot Noir
Perched on a ridge top near the town of Freestone, Tilton Hill is our coldest vineyard site and lies just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. The shallow and well drained soils, known as Goldridge, are nearly perfect for growing Pinot Noir so close to the coastline. The high density planting here has produced a wine with dark fruit aromas and an almost savage intensity, just like the wild Sonoma Coast itself.
Deep violet in color, this alluring and hedonistic wine has amazing extract and purity of fruit focus. Vibrant fruit aromas of wild strawberry and raspberry soufflé harmonize with sassafras, forest floor and East-Indian spice notes. Heady aromas lead into equally vibrant flavors of black raspberry, Mariposa Plum and white pepper. On the palate, the juicy red fruits compliment the velvet-like texture and spicy finish.
