2014 Passaggio Pinot Noir Hook Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands
I opened this purchase to celebrate with winemaker/owner Cynthia Cosco as she moved to the new winery location in Sonoma. Passaggio Wines born in 2007, has grown quickly in popularity and quantity. From the early white wine program to the over 12 varietals produced today, she captures the beauty of each vineyard and grape in every bottle.
The 2014 Hook Vineyard Pinot Noir shows a beautiful nose of ripe cherry and fresh sliced strawberries. Hints of rose pedals with a touch of damp forest. Simply beautiful.
The mouth superb with ripe red fruit. Fresh cherries, strawberries and raspberries with a hint of vanilla. A faint hint of spice on the elegant silky juicy finish. One of my top rated Pinots tasted this year! Nicely done Cindy.
Swing by the tasting room in the beautiful Sonoma Square to pick up your bottles of Pinot and be on the lookout for winery visits coming soon!
