Black Kite Cellars produces highly-textured, expressive Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from exceptional coastal vineyards. For them, wine is a journey that combines high aspirations with a long term commitment, patience, and fortitude. Their journey began in 2003 with the inaugural vintage and led them to Jeff Gaffner, who became their winemaker in 2005. In 2010, it steered them to the Soberanes Vineyard, now producing this extraordinary Pinot Noir.

The wine team forged this remarkable wine from three rows of vines out of the Soberanes Vineyard, planted to the Pisoni Clone. The vineyard is synonymous with excellence and is the latest site developed by the Pisoni’s & Franscioni’s, whose families have been farming the area for over 100 years.

Winemaker Jeff Gaffner gained fame helping make the renowned 1996 Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cépages, which became the Wine Spectator’s #1 wine of the year. Jeff fermented this Pinot with Burgundian yeast and performed punch-downs three times daily, contributing to the remarkable textures and flavor extraction of this very special Pinot.

Description

2016 BLACK KITE SOBERANES VINEYARD PINOT NOIR

“There’s a rugged and burly quality to this single-vineyard expression, starting with aromas of roast pork in a pan sauce of cranberry, mulberry, dried herbs and cracked pepper. The hearty palate layers pomegranate and plum alongside chai spice, bay leaf and sage.”
92 Points
“Vivid red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and dark berries, vanilla and candied flowers, along with smoky mineral and exotic spice overtones. Shows impressive depth as well as energy on the palate, offering sappy, concentrated black raspberry, cherry cola and spicecake flavors supported by a spine of juicy acidity. Closes with building spiciness, smooth tannins and impressive, mineral-driven persistence.” 93 Points
