“One of the most exotic and deliciously age-worthy Pinots we’ve discovered in recent memory, the sensational new RAEN Sea Field 2018 - - from the Mondavi brothers home ranch vineyard - -  launches forth with a dazzling array of spicy, dark fruit plus complex notes of orange pith, Oolong tea, and hints of tarragon and rosemary on the savory finish. The silky smooth finish delivers tremendous opulence that will deliver thrills now (decanting recommended prior to 2020) through 2026+.” California Wine Advisors.” - California Wine Advisors.  

Winemaker Notes: “Our Sea Field Vineyard is our pretty lady. Pure elegance. Situated on a remote hillside, planted under two miles from the cool Pacific Ocean and perched at 1,400 feet, Sea Field offers a delicate message from its beautiful raw expanse. This wine opens with sweet wild raspberry, orange pith, and rose petals that combine to fill the bowl with sweet resin, coastal moss, green tea, wet rock, and candied orange. The finish is persistent and fades to notes of raspberry and dried herbs as this coastal site lingers on your palate.”
