Bloom’s Field faces gently to the south but has a clear view west to the Pacific Ocean and therefore is unprotected from the marine influences of wind and fog. The environmental pressures have a profound impact on the growth of the vines, the morphology of the clusters and the textures, flavors and aromas of the wine. These unusually small clusters and berries produce a Pinot Noir of concentration and depth of flavor while the constant cooling winds preserve high levels of natural acidity that give the wines their great energy. Aromas of fresh crushed raspberry, geraniums and undersbrush are matched with flavors of cracked peppercorns and hints of salt and nori. Bloom’s Field is always 100% whole bunches and aged for 20 months in 20% new Ermitage barrels. This wine will live a decade or longer and will continue to gain in complexity and sleekness.
