2017 Walt Blue Jay
Deep purple garnet color, this wine has overflowing aromas of dried hibiscus flower and smoked paprika with hints of forest floor and mint. The palate is dense and rich, packed with flavors of sassafras, wild blueberry compote, and baking spice. This wine is a full and intense expression of Pinot Noir, perfectly balanced with toasted oak and vibrant acidity on the lengthy finish.

ABOUT THE WINERY
WALT is dedicated to the production of premier Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Pacific Coast’s most distinctive vineyard sites, spanning nearly 1000 miles and including Sta. Rita Hills, Los Carneros, Sonoma County, Anderson Valley, and the Willamette Valley. Their philosophy is that of precision, non-interventionist winemaking, thereby allowing the wines to naturally and honestly express the character of the site where the wines are grown.
WALT has a passion for producing wines of a place through single vineyard expressions of Pinot Noir. We are a family-owned Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producer with a passion for crafting wines that naturally and honestly express the character of the vineyard. Winemaking begins through thoughtful viticulture. By remaining careful stewards of the grapes throughout the winemaking process, we preserve the texture, personality, and soul of our wines.
