Marine Layer Lyra Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast CA 2019

VINTAGE : 2019

COUNTRY : USA

REGION/APPELLATION : California, Sonoma Coast

VARIETALS : Pinot Noir 

"Lyra” is one of the oldest and brightest constellations found in the California summer sky, arriving as the vines awaken back to life and departing at harvest. It presides with a watchful eye over the evolution of our Pinot Noir vineyards as they progress through their annual cycle from bud to flower to grape.

VITICULTURAL AREA
Lyra Pinot Noir is a selection of barrels from Gap’s Crown, Gravenstein, Walala, Upp Road, and Freestone vineyards. Hailing primarily from five sub-AVAs of the Sonoma Coast - Sonoma Mountain, Green Valley, Petaluma Gap, Annapolis and Sebastapol Hills - we find diversity in climate, soil, and clonal types which allows us the freedom to explore and experiment with blending.

VINIFICATION
Blend. Hand-harvested, hand-sorted and gently destemmed to keep whole berries intact with 18-20% whole-cluster inclusion. Native yeast fermentation with gentle pumpovers and manual punchdowns. Cavin, Remond, François Frères, and Stockinger wood, 30% new oak. Aged for 12 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

TASTING NOTES
The 2019 Lyra is deep garnet  in color with a nose of rose hips, citrus peel, and hints of fresh raspberry.  The palate shows high toned red fruits reminiscent of cranberries and strawberry, all wrapped in a cloak of toasty sandalwood and tangerine.  Balanced with an elegance often found in some of our favorite wines.
