Banshee Marine Layer Pinot Noir 2014
Marine Layer is our tribute to the cool West Sonoma Coast, where the consistency of the chilly ocean breezes and ever present fog create a perfect environment for the elegant style of Pinot Noir that is our muse.
We selected one or two barrels from each of our best vineyard sites - Coastlands, Rice-Spivak, Jack Hill, Hellenthal and Thorn Ridge – allowing us to combine many of the unique attributes of our vineyard designate wines into a single harmonious chorus.
The 2014 rendition is perfumed with plenty of crushed red berry notes, touches of rhubarb and hints of pine forest. It is super silky and while it arrives with a delicate touch, it leaves a long lasting and bright impression. An incredibly versatile wine, suitable for enjoying alone or with a wide variety of cuisine. We recently paired with duck sausage atop kale spaetzli for a killer course.
