This Pinot Noir starts off with aromas of plum, cherry and cola spice, followed gracefully with vanilla and rose petal. The palate offers a round full-mouth feel, with juicy ripe berry, layered with bright strawberry, baking spice, cocoa powder and nutmeg.

Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points

"Boysenberry, leather, turned earth and forest rise to the fore of this coastal wine, from a high-elevation site above the ocean. Juicy and offering length and breadth, it is both rich and riddled in acid-driven tension, providing powerful flavor and intensity."

James Suckling: 91 Points

"Swirling, spiced-biscuit and blue-fruit aromas with an earthy edge, too. The palate has a very supple and sweetly flavorful edge that carries ample, succulent fruit flavor and a ripe build of fleshy tannin to close. Drink now."

Vintage, Vinification & Technical Information

Vintage Report: Record-breaking winter rainfall kicked off the 2017 vintage in Sonoma. A mild spring brought bud break at the normal time, and vintners reported small berries with excellent color. Once cooler weather arrived after a Labor Day weekend heat wave, fruit was able to mature at a gradual pace. Most of the fruit was picked prior to the October fires, showing excellent color, pronounced flavors and high quality across varieties.

Aging: 15 months in 100% French Oak; 25% new, 30% 1x, 45% neutral

Winery Profile

About the Winery: In 1965, Jack and Jamie Davies began reviving the historic Schramsberg winery property in Napa Valley. They challenged conventional ideas and relied on innovation to craft the first world-class, American, méthode traditionelle sparkling wines produced from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. In the 1990s, a second generation of the Davies family undertook replanting the estate on Diamond Mountain to red Bordeaux varieties, and J. Davies Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was launched with the 2001 vintage. In 2014, the family released the compelling and balanced 2012 Davies Vineyards single-vineyard Pinot Noirs, a logical evolution based on over 40 years’ experience with cool-climate Pinot Noir sites and grapes in the North Coast.
