The 2016 growing season was another early harvest, similar to the previous few vintages. While grape yields were down throughout the state, the quality and depth of flavor of the fruit was exceptional. Despite a drier than average year and inconsistent weather patterns, grapes ripened and matured at optimal levels allowing remarkable flavor development resulting in balanced wines. The grapes were sourced form a vineyard located in the west end of the Anderson Valley, between Navarro and Philo. The vineyards proximity to the Pacific Ocean provides the cooling effect that is so important in producing high quality Pinot Noir.
