Description

We strive to produce distinctive wines that spotlight unique terroirs in a socially and environmentally responsible way, practicing sustainable viticulture and utilizing minimally intrusive winemaking techniques. The grapes for our 2018 Pinot Noir were carefully chosen from warm, sunny, sustainably farmed vineyards throughout California.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

A stunning garnet red in the glass, this 2020 Pinot Noir opens with red fruit aromas of cherry and rhubarb. It is gorgeous with vivid raspberry, strawberry, and fresh plum flavors with a sprinkle of allspice. 

Palate: 

This wine is well integrated, balanced, and lush with bright acidity and soft, structured tannins. The finish is smooth and lengthy

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

2020 was a challenging growing season that began in early March followed by a mild Spring yielding uniform grape clusters. With low rainfall, low yields were expected. This resulted in lovely, high concentrated fruit that was picked earlier than normal.
