ABOUT THE WINE

WALT Wines is a critically acclaimed producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that sources fruit from prestigious vineyards along the Pacific Coast. WALT features single vineyard designate wines stretching across 1,000 miles of Pinot Noir from as far north as the Willamette Valley and as far south as the Santa Rita Hills. WALT has a passion for crafting wines that naturally and honestly express the character of the vineyard, and WALT winemaking starts with thoughtful viticulture in order to preserve the soul of these unique and beautiful places.

The 2017 WALT ‘Bob’s Ranch’ Pinot Noir is the winery’s flagship wine, a field selection sourced from a single block located on the Estate Vineyard in the Sonoma Coast AVA. The wine is hand-picked, optically sorted, gravity fed to tank and fermented with 100% native yeasts. It is 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.
