Vintage Notes: 

Planted on Huichica clay loam soil, our Estate has eight blocks of Pinot Noir with a unique combination of clone and rootstock. The 2020 Estate Pinot Noir was harvested between August 25 and August 28 and is made using all of our eight estate clones – 115, 828, Swan, La Tache, Calera and Mt. Eden, 777 and 23. This combination of clones showcases the ideal expression of the estate’s terroir and were fermented in individual lots with native yeasts in open top fermenters, basket-pressed and aged on lees before being blended together.
