Coast view sits at 2,200 feet above the Salinas Valley with views of the Monterey Bay. Being above the fog line allows for full ripeness and thus the 2016 saw a large proportion of whole cluster fermentation. This led to wine that shows crushed hibiscus, spicy cinnamon, anise and red plum on the pungent nose. Crisp pomegranate and raspberry flavors meet with sumac and aromatic mints on the palate.

Tucked away in the Santa Cruz Mountains on a historic vineyard site, Big Basin Vineyards since 1998 have carefully restored the vines that were first planted by French immigrants in the 1900s. These vineyards are cool climate, mountainous, and marine influenced - creating wines that are refreshing, balanced, and complex. The winery focuses on organic viticultural methods, harvesting low yields to maintain quality, and low intervention in the cellar - all of which produce wines that showcase the care and precision of the winemaking and grape growing.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 93
"The 2016 Pinot Noir Coastview Vineyard is a beautiful wine that melds the power that comes so naturally at Big Basin with an extra kick of brightness and inner perfume. Sweet red cherry, mint, blood orange and cinnamon infuse the 2016 with striking layers of nuance that continue to develop over time. Chalk, white pepper and a touch of whole cluster savoriness from the 88% stems rounds things out. The 2016 is such a vivid, expressive Pinot. Drinking window: 2020 - 2030." -Vinous

"Grown at about 2,200 feet above the Salinas Valley with views of the Monterey Bay, this bottling, which saw 88% whole-cluster fermentation, shows crushed hibiscus, spicy cinnamon, anise and red plum on the pungent nose. Crisp pomegranate and raspberry flavors meet with sumac and aromatic mints on the palate." -Matt Kettmann
