2019 'Omay Pinot Noir
'Omay is the Coast Miwok word for the Brown Pelican. For Coast Miwok people, the brown pelican is harbinger of good things to come. We feel the same about the wine. Sourced from one of the finest Pinot vineyards in Sonoma County, the fruit is meticulously maintained to the highest standards. In 2019 the fruit was picked at full maturity before major forest fires in the area could affect the grapes
100% Sangiacomo Family Vineyards, Robert's Road - 100% Pommard pinot clone - planted c.1999. These east-west oriented vines are planted in silty gravel soil with good drainage and are certified sustainably grown. The vineyard enjoys a long, slow, even growing season largely due to the daily fog that burns off mid-day. In Sangiacomo's own words, "Roberts Road grapes are amongst the most prestigious that our family cultivates." Over 20 other wineries source grapes for this idyllic spot.
Aromas of ripe cherries, violets, and cedar. Flavors of red licorice, cherries, and hints of nutmeg erupt in the mouth followed by a gentle yet, long finish.
