Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Powerful bouquet of jammy blackberries, plum, pomegranate with a hint of currant. Intense and meaty, but very well rounded palate. A classic Pinot Noir, beautiful acidity, great structure and continues to open.
Vineyard Notes
Cultivating balance in the vineyard requires listening to your intuition as much as your vines. With the assistance of Andrew Avellar from Carneros Vineyard Management, we sustainably farm 8.5 acres of an ancient riverbed, located in the heart of Sonoma County's Carneros appellation. Our 100% Pinot Noir vineyard is divided into four distinct blocks, and planted with a field blend of two Burgundian clones from the Cote d’Or that are ideally suited to our soils and location. Clone 667 gives us beautiful acidity, great structure, small clusters, intense color and a long finish, while clone 115 helps us achieve a sophisticated elegance and incredible aromatics. Together, these clones produce a wine with complex synergies and exceptional balance. We meticulously tend our vines throughout the year, thinning the crop dramatically to ensure they produce no more than 2 to 2.5 tons per acre. We then hand-pick based solely on flavor, harvesting selected blocks over the course of multiple nights to capture and preserve the freshness and purity of night-chilled fruit.
Production Notes
Hand-harvested and whole cluster pressed, this remarkable wine is aged 15 months in neutral oak barrels to allow the fruit to show its full potential and rested 1 year in bottle before release.
