Failla Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Napa Valley’s Silverado Trail is a favorite drive for many who have visited. As you head up the valley, there is an easy to miss small road that wanders up into the hills. The road winds through the trees to a charming yellow house. This is the starting point to your tasting experience at Failla’s boutique winery. The majority of Failla’s wine is Pinot Noir. The winery is the personal project of Ehren Jordan, who was the long-time apprentice at Turley Cellars, and Anne-Marie Failla for whom the winery is named.
Failla’s Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir offers soft, round berry fruit, pomegranate, plum and spice notes with a seductive, medium-bodied mouthfeel and balanced acidity. This wine bursts with sweet aromatics exploding with flavor on the palate. It has tons of juicy acid and great structure. Erin’s wine-making philosophy is simple: using only native yeasts, never adding water and acid like some who pick their grapes too ripe. He also practices natural malolactic fermentation — letting the wines do their own magic and speak for themselves.
