2019 Pinot Noir
Meaning “good year”, Bon Anno, the Italian saying heralds the celebration of good times, and is a fortuitous play on Vintner Matthew Bonanno’s last name
With the first release in 2004, BonAnno wines are consistently fruit forward, juicy, ripe and luscious, offering tremendous value for the price – and Napa Valley name recognition
This limited-edition bottling is only available to our club members and online customers
Northern California’s 2019 season was near picture-perfect and considered classic. Just the right amount of early heat in the spring to acclimate the grapes was followed by mild temperatures that continued throughout the season and offered superior flavor development. Late rains in May also benefited many growers. A steady string of warm weather carried through to September leading to long hang times, even ripening, and distinctive flavor development.
The 2019 BonAnno Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is sourced from a single vineyard site known as the Frates vineyard in the Petaluma Gap AVA within Sonoma. Windy conditions along with cool fog off the bay make the climate an ideal area for cultivating high quality Pinot Noir.
Owner/Winemaker Matt Bonanno works closely with several vineyard managers throughout the Napa Valley to ensure the quality of his fruit and maximize the potential of each vintage.
Medium ruby in color and fresh with ripe red cherry and raspberry with hints of forest floor and vanilla. The wine is ripe and textured on the palate with red fruits, candied orange and black tea. The finish is long with fresh acidity and structured tannins.
