Glass House Vineyard is located at a gap in the mountains separating Sonoma Valley from the influences of the Sonoma Coast. This provides a cooling marine influence that allows for optimal Pinot Noir growing. Three Pinot Noir clones were aged sur-lees in French oak barrels until the wine tasted right.
The color is showing a light garnet typical of the best Pinot Noir. A flowery, complex and varietally correct nose promises a true Pinot experience. Layered flavors expand in the mid palate in perfect balance, rolling backwards and expanding outwards, evolving into a lingering finish. As with the greatest Pinots, this one is feminine and delicate and pairs with a wider variety of foods than any other wine.
