2017 WIGHTMAN SONOMA COUNTY PINOT NOIR
Anytime a new customer walks into our shop in Yountville, they’re always surprised by the number of great Pinot Noirs that we feature. Wine Country Connection’s roots go back more than two decades in Sonoma County, where outside of Burgundy, Pinot Noir reigns king… Over the years we’ve discovered some truly stunning Pinots that have delivered exceptional quality and value with characteristics classic to the varietal. Our discovery of Orrin-Sage Pinot Noir last year ranks among the foremost micro-produced Pinot Noirs that we’ve uncovered in recent years, and it quickly became a favorite among our customers. Unfortunately, the name Orrin-Sage was a little too close for comfort for another well-established brand, and so Wightman was born…
Arising from meticulously chosen vineyards located in Bennett Valley, Petaluma Gap and Sonoma Mountain AVAs, this cool-climate Pinot truly has it all. And just like Orrin-Sage, the wine was expertly made by Justin Harmon, who gained valuable experience as an intern under Russell Bevan. The 2017 has stunning clarity, brilliant balance and opens up to vivid red and blue fruits, wild flowers, tea leaf and hints of cocoa. It’s absolutely one of the best Pinots in the shop under fifty, and the 2017 shouldn’t be missed.
