The 2020 Sandler Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir comes from Freeman's Gloria Estate Vineyard and the vineyard formerly known as Keefer Ranch. We call it Cuvée Kemuri because the 2020 vintage was marked by smoke, and kemuri is smoke in Japanese. We don't think you'll find any smoke aromas in this wine, but we will always remember the California wildfires of August 2020. This Pinot should be at its best from 2022 through 2029.
