2020 Wayfarer Pinot Noir WF2 Fort Ross Sea View

Tasting Notes










The 2020 vintage opens with aromas of vibrant dark fruit, blueberry and blackberry compote, subtle forest floor and savory earth. Delicious pomegranate enters the palate, at once refreshing, dense and powerful. Rich notes of dark chocolate round out the finish. Enjoy as the wine continues to open in the glass.



About Wayfarer WF2



Launched in 2021, Wayfarer WF2 wines are 100% estate, limited production, high quality and value driven.  Inspired by the age-old question of what to open on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, WF2 wines are fresh, vibrant and richly textured.












Winemaking Notes










The Pinot Noir grapes were hand-picked in the cool of the night and hand-sorted at the winery. The fruit was cold-soaked then fermented in stainless steel tanks with native yeast and careful punch-downs. The wine aged in 30% new French oak barrels for 10 months and was bottled in August 2021.












Vintage Notes







With overall rainfall only 28 inches compared to our 65-inch annual average, 2020 is considered a drought year. However, we received 3 inches of rain in April, and another 3 inches in May. This water filled the soil profile and gave the vines plenty of energy through spring, allowing budbreak and bloom to occur within their typical timeframes. The summer was warmer than average, with temperatures reaching the mid-80s on most days. The vines loved the warm weather and kept to their normal schedule, with veraison occurring at the end of July. August continued with warmer than average weather, however we only had one day where the temperature rose above 90 degrees. The vines continued to thrive until harvest, which began on August 26th and wrapped up on September 19th.
