 Small Vines Pinot Noir TBH 2018 - organic

Small Vines crafts exquisite Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from some of California’s most meticulously farmed and unique, high-density vineyards. Selecting on only sensational properties with low-vigor soils in cool, coastal climates- they have been developing their Estate Vineyards since 1999. Each exceptional site distinguishes itself from the other by creating captivating, soil-driven wines from the Russian River and Sonoma Coast.
 
Winery notes:  100% from TBH Vineyard -our Estate-which sits on a cool-windy ridge top with heavy coastal influences in Sebastopol. Planted by us in 2009, farmed without the use of synthetic chemicals. This exquisite Pinot Noir, from obsessively tended vines, expresses precision and a distinct sense of place. This amazing site is expressing itself with purity of fruit, great natural acidity, satisfying tannins, minerality and even some distinct savory characteristics.
96 points, Wine Enthusiast:  From the producer's own home estate planted in 2009, this is a gorgeous reckoning of minty sage, black tea and cool-climate hits of pomegranate and rhubarb. The tannins are strong and supportive and soften in the glass, showing a graceful structure that complements the crisp, persistent acidity. 
 
94 points Vinous The 2018 Pinot Noir TBH Vineyard is fabulous. It brings together so many of the attributes that make the Small Vines wines so intriguing. Linear in build, with terrific drive, the TBH is all about energy. Red/purplish berry fruit, gravel, rose petal, blood orange and spice give the 2018 so much character. Calera and Swan clones confer so much nuance and complexity.
