tasting profile

"Pure, juicy, ripe black cherry and blackberry greet the nose, and are quickly followed by intertwined, but not sweet, notes of purple plum, brown sugar, and dark chocolate, cinnamon, and earthy spice. Round and mouth filling on the palate, the 2021 Boom’s Field has a luscious, outgoing personality, with an abundance of ripe fruit flavors that intriguingly combine with bracingly savory impressions of fresh green leaves and black tea.

All of this is bound together in a tightly woven fabric of thick, rich tannins. It’s an impressive mouthful of wine in its youth and will be a joy to observe over time as its dense, velvety texture leans out and its aromatic voices become more distinct." - James Mackay

IN THE VINEYARD:

Located alongside Memorious, Bloom’s Field spans a southwest-facing hillside, rooted in Monterey Shale bedrock. Here, lighter clay topsoils mixed with silt and sand yield a Pinot Noir rich in aromatic presence and intensity.

in the winery:

  • Naturally fermented with indigenous yeasts in open concrete tanks
  • 100% whole cluster
  • 10-month elevage in French oak, 30% new

Recommendations:

  • Delicious now; will evolve and age gracefully
  • Perfect with roast duck.

in the press

97 PTS - JAMES SUCKLING - "Ripe fruit on the nose with ginger and perfectly ripened strawberries. Full-bodied, very tannic and powerful with density and length. Muscular and formed. Needs time to soften. Better after 2026."

97 PTS - WINE ENTHUSIAST - "This estate bottling shows the most vivid and accessible fruit qualities compared to the rest of the 2021 lineup. Dark berry aromas meet with rose, carnation, achiote and turned earth on the nose. The tightly structured palate's dark-fruit core is decorated in eucalyptus leaf, Kalamata olive and strong, dank herb flavors."

94 PTS - WINE ADVOCATE - "The 2021 Pinot Noir Bloom's Field has a pale ruby color and pretty, floral-driven aromas of raspberry, pomegranate, oolong tea, blood orange and lavender. Chalky, fresh and delicately styled, it's pleasantly austere with a more ethereal style than the other 2021s this vintage and finishes with uplifted citrusy tones."

94 PTS - ANTONIO GALLONI - "The 2021 Pinot Noir Bloom's Field is laced with dark red fruit, herbs, sweet tobacco, cedar, mint and rose petal. Aromatic and bright, with terrific depth, the 2021 is super-expressive. Bright acids and beams of tannin confer energy. Finer clay soils mixed with silt and sand yield a decidedly mid-weight, airy Pinot with tons of aromatic presence and an expression of intensity that is more implied than stated."

93 PTS - WINE SPECTATOR - "Juicy and driven, with a well-knit core of cherry and damson plum notes, laced with red tea and backed by a subtle flash of grilled herbs. The finish, which is underscored by nice focusing acidity, is steady and persistent as the fruit plays out with chalky minerality. Drink now through 2032."
