Failla Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 750ML
Failla this cuvée is a blend of young-vine blocks from Failla's multiple Sonoma Coast appellation sources. As always the winemaking method remains the same for the Sonoma Coast wines as the Vineyard Designates. Each of the lots were fermented separately and blended at bottling. Upon arriving to the winery, the fruit was destemmed and placed in open top fermenters and cold soaked for 5 days. Fermentation begins spontaneously with native yeasts and typically finishes in five days. Immediately following fermentation, the wine is barreled down by gravity. Roughly 15% new oak is used on each of the individual lots and aged sur-lie for 9 months. The balance of the Sonoma Coast blend was sourced from mainly younger vines from the following vineyards: Keefer Ranch, Hirsch, Floodgate, Failla Estate, Sonoma Stage, and Whistler.
