Notes from the Winemaker:
Bright cherry cola and ripe strawberries punctuate the elegant bouquet of our Pinot Noir. Perfectly balanced and savory its creamy mid-palette is enhanced by subtle yet persistent, acidity though out the lengthy finish. This incredibly approachable wine is perfect on its own and with creamy cheese, or salmon

Fruit for the 2016 Pinot Noir was grown from three estate vineyard blocks, planted to a mix of Dijon clones (115, 667, 777). The location of these blocks was chosen because they are at the coldest site in the valley. The low gap in the ridge above the vineyard allows cooler air from above Clear Lake to spill into High Valley producing Pinot Noir with more intense varietal character, better color extraction, and excellent acid retention. We ferment these clones separately and drain the juice off the skins early to make a balanced wine. Aging in French and Hungarian (10% new) oak for fourteen months softens the wine. Our Pinot Noir is lightly fined before bottling

Ratings & Reviews

Wine Enthusiast:
"Warm ripe plummy aromas and flavors are shaded by light oak spices like vanilla and nutmeg in this medium-bodied, round and soft-textured wine. It tastes smooth, rather rich and easy to sip. Jim Gordon" - (5/1/2019)
