James Suckling 98 Points: “Extremely aromatic with plums, crushed strawberries, rose flower, powdery dirt, before turning to cherries. Hints of flower stems. Perfumed. Full-bodied and very, very firm. Rather steely. Tight at the end. It opens beautifully in an hour or so. Drink after 2025.”
Winemaker Notes: “Our 4.8 Sea Field Vineyard (monopole) produces our most elegant wines year in and year out. This unique bottling comes from an ancient Sea Field of diverse marine soils and fractured bedrock dating back between 66 and 200 million years. Soaring 1,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean and less than 3 miles from its waters, Sea Field is both our most coastal and highest elevation pinot noir site. The combination of these elements creates Sea Field. Delicate, lifted aromas of rose petals, orange pith, crushed pomegranate, and raspberries, with the essence of where-the-forest-meets-the-ocean, fill the bowl. Wild strawberries, cool-coastal forest, wet rock, sea moss, and blood orange linger. On the palate, wild strawberries, faint violet flowers, and distant notes of white tea lead to a seemingly endless finish.
