Migration Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2019
91 pts. Jeb Dunnuck:
"Readers looking for a classic Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir should check out the 2019 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast, a medium-bodied, spicy, savory, yet supple and textured Pinot Noir. With lots of spiced red fruits, some earthy, forest notes, ripe tannins, and no hard edges, it's ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years.”
This beautiful Pinot Noir from the good folks at Duckhorn Wine Company is another shining example of their expert winemaking. They choose only the best grapes for their wines, and the Migration Pinot Noir is no exception. They take good winemaking seriously, and the result is a Pinot that could easily command a much higher price; it's THAT GOOD!
FROM THE WINERY
Migration is dedicated to crafting wines from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions highlighting lush fruit, bright acidity and impeccably balanced oak. This dedication has taken us to the storied vineyards of California’s Sonoma Coast, where clockwork fog and Goldridge sandy loam soils have contributed to a Pinot Noir with beautiful high-tone red fruit flavors of cherry, cranberry and strawberry and enticing hints of orange-cinnamon spice.
2019 was an amazing year for cool-climate varietals. With plentiful spring rains, the growing season got off to a great start, especially for our dry-farmed Running Creek Estate. The season continued to provide ideal conditions, with cooler spring weather, moderate summer temperatures, and warm days in the run-up to harvest. We picked each vineyard exactly when we wished, resulting in bright, crisp Chardonnays with pure, elegantly delineated flavors and vibrant and concentrated Pinot Noirs with silky, refined tannins.
This wine opens with vibrant aromas of ripe cherry, raspberry and strawberry, followed by subtle savory hints of forest floor and dried herbs. On the palate it is silky and elegant, with finely integrated tannins and balanced acidity framing the rich fruit flavors as they glide to a lush, well-rounded finish.
