2009 Sonnet Tondre's Grapefield Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 750ml
Sonnet is the creation of Tony Craig, begun during his tenure as winemaker for David Bruce Winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California.
Originally a Shakespearean actor from the English town of Newcastle, Tony led the Pinot Noir vineyard designation program at David Bruce for twelve years. As acclaim and recognition for the Bruce Pinot Noir grew, Tony began producing wines for himself as well.
Many phone calls, much paperwork, and a few years later, Sonnet wines have quickly become some of the most sought after Pinot Noir in California.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: The entry offers rich, concentrated cherry-berry pie scents that turn firm, earthy and tannic, but end with expansive flavors that reverberate on the finish. Drink now through 2020.
