Failla Occidental Ridge Pinot Noir

We are very excited to have a couple of cases of the Failla Occidental Ridge Pinot Noir. Wines from this very special vineyard are hard to come by, only Failla and Rivers-Marie source fruit from Occidental Ridge and usually these wines are soaked up by restaurants around the country. Only 23 bottles available (we have to try a bottle).

2018 Failla Occidental Ridge Pinot Noir....$79.99
he 2018 Pinot Noir Occidental Ridge Vineyard is a magnificent, head spinning wine. Inky dark fruit, violet, plum, licorice, hard candy, mint and sweet spice give the 2018 striking aromatic nuance, but it is the wine’s mid-palate depth and unctuous richness that stand out most. Even with all of its overtness and plushness, the 2018 remains light on its fee. That, in essence, is the magic of the Sonoma Coast – the way on which the wines feel ripe but not heavy. Wow. What a wine.
