2016 Smokescreen Sonoma Mountain Pinot Noir

  • Our Sonoma Mountain Pinot is a brawny wine made from mountain fruit that is a true expression of the vineyard’s surroundings. Black cherry fruit and youthful tannins jump out and end with a nice acidity. Fruity, without giving up its vital energy, this well-focused wine is full on the palate and its texture. suppleness and roundness provide it with an early accessibility. Enjoy it now and over the next 5-6 years.
