Winemaker Notes

In 2018, this windswept mountain vineyard produced a beautifully intricate and expressive Pinot Noir with aromas of black cherry, sarsaparilla, vanilla, cedar and rose petal. The ripe cherry notes are echoed on the velvety palate, where they mingle with flavors of black currant, tea leaves and fresh-cracked pepper throughout a long, sumptuous finish.

Production

The quality of the 2018 growing season in the Santa Cruz Mountains was fantastic. After warm early spring weather led to an early budbreak, the temperatures cooled in late-spring, followed by sunny days with moderate temperatures throughout the summer. This provided us with exceptionally long hangtimes that resulted in beautifully ripe flavors in the grapes. At the same time, the temperate weather ensured that the fruit retained ideal natural acidity, yielding vibrant wines, with exceptional structure and alluring flavors.
