The 2016 Sommità Pinot Noir has an immediate sense of the finer terriors of Marin; cool summers, afternoon winds, and the ever-present morning fog. Fermented in small lots, each parcel for Sommità is chosen for its energy and transparency. Aromatically, Sommità offers bright tones of dried green herbs and rose petals in a unique expression of the Skywalker property. On the palate, lively red fruits of cherry and cranberry mix with darker, woodsy tones of allspice and cedar. Highlighted by vineyard blocks that run across the upper-most ridge line of the estate, the palate offers a joyous sense of ripeness, pleasure, and harmony.
