VintageVino Pick of the Day: de Coelo Pinot Noir 2006 by Mike Benziger

de Coelo Pinot Noir Terra Numa Vineyard Sonoma Coast, 2006

This wine is made from a small (25 acre) vineyard that is farmed biodynamically by Mike Benziger. It sits just 5 miles from the Pacific coast in Sonoma - very cold and really on the edge of grape growing. This wine was one of the best wines I tasted all week while traveling in Napa and Sonoma.

Wonderful balance and acidity - it was the smooth, earthy flavors that really did it for me. Just delicious to drink.

540 cases were produced in 2006.
