Jackson Estate Cloud Landing Pinot Noir 2021

Situated on the undulating hills between the San Pablo Bay and the Pacific Ocean, Cloud Landing is perched in the fog line more often than not, but still exposed to the persistent wind from the Petaluma Wind Gap. The grapes are challenged not only by the wind, but also the cool, long days that make this site ideal for developed flavors and natural acidity in Pinot Noir. Aromas of bright raspberry, strawberry and rhubarb pie with a hint of forest floor and a savory richness on the palate.

2019 Vintage

93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinouse, Jul 2021

The 2019 Pinot Noir Cloud Landing is a powerful, brooding wine. Blueberry, plum, sage, mint and a whole range of savory, cool-climate accents fill out the layers, with earthy, gamy notes beneath that add darkness.
