The Folk Machine Pinot Noir is always fairly light weight and light in color with relaxed tannins and medium acid. 2019 is consistent with the past few vintages and with what we expect from this wine. It is a very lively and an easy wine to serve with most foods. Keep expecting a fun Pinot that is elegant, pretty, and drinkable. Though light in color due to no attempt to extract or over manipulate, the wine does not lack for flavor or body, but rather shows the silky more subtle side of the variety. Drink often, pair with anything (seriously.)
Folk Machine Central Coast Pinot Noir
The 2019 Central Coast Pinot Noir is largely a blend of Mission Ranch (Arroyo Seco) and Cedar Lane (Arroyo Seco) with a touch of The Tom Ritchie Vineyard (Sonoma Coast). As always, the wine is largely Pommard Clone, but also 2a, and some Dijon 115 and 777 for fruit and jamminess. The wine was aged in 2-6 year old French oak barrels for 9 Months.
