ABOUT THE WINE

WALT Wines is a critically acclaimed producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from along the Pacific Coast. The core of their portfolio features Single Vineyard designate wines from properties as far north as the Willamette Valley and as far south as the Sta. Rita Hills of Santa Barbara County – WALT Wines “1,000 miles of Pinot Noir.” They have a passion for crafting wines that naturally and honestly express the character of the vineyard and start their winemaking with thoughtful viticulture in order to preserve the soul of these unique and beautiful places.

The 2015 WALT “Bob’s Ranch” Pinot Noir is a flagship wine – a Field Selection sourced from a block located on “Bob’s Ranch” — their Estate Vineyard located along the Sonoma Coast AVA. The wine is hand-picked, optically sorted, gravity fed to tank, and fermented with 100% native yeasts, and bottled without fining agents or the use of filtration. “Bob’s Ranch” glows with a deep purple hue and is dense on the palate with boysenberry, crushed violets and baking spice.
