About This Wine
Plums and apples once dominated the landscape.
Today, grapevines have taken their place, and transformed the face of one of Sonoma County’s most beautiful towns: Sebastopol. About a 20-minute drive from the Pacific Ocean between Bodega Bay and Santa Rosa, Sebastopol also is a center for the arts, and was the long-time home of the late “Peanuts” cartoonist, Charles M. Schulz.
Sebastopol Oaks sources its grapes from premium grape-growing regions, and utilized fruit from specially selected Sonoma Coast vineyards for this 2013 Pinot Noir. The Sonoma Coast is one of California’s most prized wine regions because its warm days and cool nights — characterized by Pacific breezes — give Pinot Noir grapes ample time to develop fully.
Some of the world’s great wines are crafted from Pinot Noir, and the 2013 Sebastopol Pinot Noir is a beautifully focused, juicy wine with a smooth mouthfeel — a delicious taste of the Sonoma Coast.
