Lot #59 SIDURI
GROVES TO COVES
Seascape Vineyard 50%, Sealift Vineyard 50%
- West Sonoma Coast
ABOUT THE WINE:
“Groves to Coves” is a unique blend of two gorgeous West Sonoma Coast sites that lie perilously close to the chilly Pacific Ocean. Nestled between redwood groves and coastline coves lies a truly mesmerizing place to grow Pinot Noir – the West Sonoma Coast. This auction lot celebrates the newly achieved AVA status of this sublime area.
Seascape Vineyard is planted on a coastal ridge west of the town of Occidental at over 1,000 feet in elevation. With no higher ridges between the vineyard and the Pacific Ocean, the vineyard stays very cool throughout the growing season and offers not only stunning panoramic views of Bodega Bay and the Pacific Ocean below, but high-toned fruit, earthiness and vibrant acidity in the Pinot Noirs. Sealift Vineyard is planted near the town of Annapolis just four miles from the Pacific Ocean, on the far northern end of the West Sonoma Coast. Nestled amongst the redwoods at 900 feet in elevation, this wild and woodsy place offers compelling richness, weight and spice in the Pinot Noirs.
Pinot Noir is a winegrower’s wine – meaning that attention to detail in the vineyard far outweighs any cellar manipulation in order to showcase these incredible places. A gentle nudge in the cellar to get things moving in the right direction and keeping hands off yields wines that are true to place and vintage. Expect raspberry, black cherry, earth, forest floor, and medium weight with structure and acid that will age gracefully.
