2021 Three Sticks Winery 'Price Family Estate' Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
Winemaker Notes: The Price Family Estates Pinot Noir is a blend of our Estate Vineyards throughout the Sonoma Coast. The core of the wine comes from the Walala Vineyard, a 17-acre site set in the middle of 19,000 acres of redwoods in the furthest northwestern town of Sonoma County. The other key vineyards that make up this wine are Gap's Crown, Durell, and Alana. Each site brings unique characteristics and depth to this bold Pinot Noir. In this bottling, we love the fresh lavender and pine with a core of cinnamon and cherry that demands you keep going back for more. We adore this special Pinot Noir that serves as a tribute to the magnificent vineyards within Price Family Estates.
Decanter - "Even in potentially cool zones like the foggy Sonoma Coast, there's always a breadth and a grandeur to California's finest Pinot Noirs. What our judges liked so much about this example was the fact that its fundamental scale was no impediment to a sense of finesse and refinement in the fruit. You'll find almost perfumed, violet-and-rose scents behind the fresh plum, while on the palate this is a concentrated and vivacious wine with resonant black-fruit acidity, light tannins, delicious underlying sweetness and mouthwatering purity and freshness. Drink 2019-2025."
Wine Spectator - "Powerful and rich-tasting, with concentrated dark berry and fruit flavors that are backed by fresh acidity and tannins. Minerally midpalate, with well-knit spiciness and forest floor notes lingering on the suave finish. Best from 2022 through 2027. 554 cases made."
Wine Enthusiast - "This youthful wine is from several properties owned by the producer, including the Walala, Gap’s Crown, Durell and One Sky Vineyards. Earth, clove and tree bark tones provide a savory edge of complexity, followed by focused elements of baking spice, orange, pomegranate and strawberry. Structured yet bright, it is cohesive and delicious."
