From three distinct vineyard sites, including the up-and-coming DeVoto in the Sebastopol Hills area of the Sonoma Coast/Russian River Valley, this saignée of Pinot Noir was given time in 100% French oak barrels, all of them four years or older. Sprightly and refreshing, the wine is a mélange of watermelon and raspberry, just sweet enough to sip on its own without overreaching.
