Lot #62 BROOKS NOTE WINERY, THIRTY-SEVEN WINES
WIND & SEA
Taylor's Crown 50%, Paradise Vineyard 50%
- Petaluma Gap
ABOUT THE WINE:
“Wind and Sea” is a blend of two vineyards from the Petaluma Gap boasting an exceptional concentration of fruit. Taylor’s Crown is at the northeast corner of the Petaluma Gap. It sits at the top of the ridge on the western side of Sonoma Mountain with rocky soils. With its mineral rich diablo clay soils Paradise Vineyard is located on the rolling hills overlooking San Francisco Bay in the southernmost tip of the Petaluma Gap. Both vineyards are strongly influenced by the cool ocean breeze and fog from the Petaluma Gap, with Paradise Vineyard receiving an extra dose of sea air from the bay. The wind and the sea worked together to create a longer growing season and unique environment that produced this stellar 2022 Pinot Noir barrel auction lot.
This is the first collaboration between Winemakers Shane Finley and Garry Brooks since Garry worked for Shane at Kosta Browne. It is a distinctive blend of both of the vineyards and their unique winemaking styles. Shane Finely has been crafting beautiful wines for 20 years. Garry Brooks began Brooks Note Winery with his wife, Joanne Note Brooks, in 2012 after working with Shane at Kosta Browne and Dan Goldfield at Dutton Goldfield.
Expect floral aromas with baking spice, dusty cherry, hibiscus and rose. Dark cherry and blackberry flavors follow on the palate with savory forest floor, (like walking through a redwood grove), raspberry, saffron and wet stone. The finish features flavors of cherry, raspberry, rose, black tea and tarragon with balanced acidity and firm structure.
