While Kelli White and Scott Brenner are most known for their book, Napa Valley Then & Now, and as the former wine directors at Press Restaurant in St. Helena, they are also now making Houndstooth Wines. Scott and Kelli are producing the wine with guidance from John Kongsgaard and after tasting their new releases together, we were really impressed with their 2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. Big, lush and bold, this newly released 2016 is multi-layered with dark red fruit and a touch of baking spice adds complexity in the glass. It was produced from a tiny crop, with only 1.6 tons of Clone 115 from Goldrock Ridge Vineyard yielded per acre. 75 cases were produced.
