Raen, “Home Field” Pinot Noir Fort Ross-Seaview, Sonoma Coast, California 2014 (750mL)
From vineyards on the extreme Sonoma Coast, Carlo and Dante Mondavi (grandsons of California icon Robert) strive for maximum terroir transparency in their assorted Pinot Noir cuvées. The wines are crafted via whole-cluster fermentations using native yeasts, then aged in neutral French oak from 10-20 months, depending on the vintage and the source vineyard site. These wines have wowed us over the years—their finessed, age-worthy style is strongly reminiscent of Chambolle-Musigny from Burgundy.
