2014 Banshee 'Marine Layer' Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
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. It has become one of our most critically acclaimed wines, being named the Wine & Spirits top domestic Pinot Noir, among other accolades.
The 2014 rendition is perfumed with notes of red berry preserves, crushed rose petals and suggestions of forest floor and baking spice. It is tightly wound yet it arrives on the palate with silkiness and focus. The flavors suggest bitter cherry, strawberry, crushed rock and some elements of blood orange. An incredibly nervy yet versatile wine, suitable for enjoying on its own or with a wide variety of cuisine.
