The two wines that have been graced with the name Anthony & Dominic are the 2015 North Coast Pinot Noir and 2016 North Coast Chardonnay. These 2 wines started in the vineyard! The harvest was definitely a comeback year. Harvest brought lots of sun and almost perfect fruit. This was a harvest that made things easier for us winemakers. We were able to bring the fruit in and let it shine, no need for any fixing. One of the biggest difficulties was to find room for all of the fruit!
Complex citrus fruit flavors and aromas with a slight hint of oak highlight this crisp, clean release. The vineyard was hand harvested and the fruit was fermented using a Chardonnay yeast to enhance the bright fruit character. The light straw color hints at the fresh, appealing flavor profile and delicate oak accents.
2016 Pinot Noir
Hand harvested and moved through an 82° fermentation using a Burgundy yeast to enhance the bright fruit character. The cool fog and bay breezes created a moderate vineyard climate resulting in a multi-layered, fruit driven wine with age softened tannins and a pleasant balance of fruit and oak. Aged 18 months in new and neutral French and American oak barrels.
