Banshee Sonoma Pinot Noir 2014

From the winemaker:

2014 was the final installment of a trilogy of vintages which all featured
relatively early harvests and bountiful crops with even growing seasons that
presented relatively few problems. The resulting fruit was pristine and
we were able to make most harvest decisions based on ideals rather than
forced circumstances.

Our fruit for Sonoma County Pinot Noir continues to grow more refined
year after year. We continually examine our vineyard sources to discard
weaker links and add stronger ones. We now include Pinot Noir from 17
different vineyard sites, including many of our single vineyards, with more
than ten clones in our final blend. This enables us to have a broad palette
with which to paint - our secret formula to providing high quality Pinot at
unparalleled value.

As with past vintages, the high percentage of Sonoma Coast fruit (79%) is
the bedrock of the wine, delivering the signature floral and earth aromatics
and fine structure for which the Banshee Pinot Noir is known. The 2014
strikes a beautiful balance between both red and blue fruits, notably Bing
cherry and Asian plums. Interwoven with the fruit characteristics is coastal
moss, fresh wild mushrooms and spice. The wine has good carry-through
from front to finish, with lively acidity to keep it light on its feet.
