Wine Tasting Notes 2013 PINOT NOIR & 2015 PINOT NOIR Sonoma Valley

Tin Barn Vineyards celebrates those hidden treasures that lie off the map. Our wines highlight the true character of Sonoma County.

2013 PINOT NOIR WINE – CARNEROS – SONOMA COUNTY RICCI VINEYARD

High a top the ridges of the Sonoma Coast, just off Tin Barn Road, lies a remote plot of Syrah vines. From this fog enshrouded slope, we sourced grapes for our very first wine and derived inspiration for our name. That was back in 2000.

In the years since, winemaker Michael Lancaster and his business partners have made a fitting home in our own “tin barn” a warehouse in rural Sonoma that serves as both cellar space and Sonoma wine tasting. Here, we’ve joined with fellow artisan winemakers to form the collective known as Eighth Street Wineries.

Come visit sometime! Remember, though, that a map will only get you so far.

Along the outskirts of Sonoma, on a foggy slope facing the San Pablo Bay, lies a small estate farmed by the Ricci family. The fruit we source from Ricci Vineyard is a combination of two clones, resulting in silky, supple Pinot Noir with notes of dried cherry and clove.
