Coho 2016 Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir
Stanly Ranch is the eastern most vineyard in the Los Carneros appellation. Originally planted with Pinot Noir in the 1870s, the vineyard borders the wetlands of the Napa River/San Pablo Bay watershed. Proximity to the cool foggy marine climate of the bay imparts spicy aromatics in the wine, while the clay and clay loam soils contribute an earthy complexity to the black cherry fruit flavors.
