Due to its proximity to the coast, this Comptche Pinot Noir normally exhibits cool-climate characteristics, but with 2017 being a very warm year, we see signs of warmer weather influence. The cool summer imparted red currant, blueberries, and a bit of funk and leather to the palate. A couple of warm weeks in early August added some ripe cherry, dried fruit, and perfume notes. We find this wine is particularly fun to decant and watch as it develops over a couple hours.
