In the Vineyard

The 2017 season began with plentiful rains that resulted in healthy vines and an excellent crop. After ideal temperate weather throughout the summer, a significant September heat spell ushered in a brisk start to harvest. A return to normal temperatures, combined with thoughtful irrigation, slowed the pace and allowed us to continue picking each site at optimal levels of ripeness. The grapes arrived at our winery in exceptional condition, resulting in complex wines that embody the rustic elegance of great Anderson Valley winemaking.

Comments from the Winemaker

This lush and robust Pinot Noir offers alluring aromas of warm blueberry crumble, bramble and pennyroyal that leap from the glass. Though displaying excellent weight and complexity, it is balanced and fresh on the palate, with a lovely driving acidity framing the luxurious dark berry and earth flavors, while carrying the wine to a long, juicy finish.
