WINEMAKER NOTES:

Hand-harvested at night, fermented with native yeast, and malolactic fermentations. Aged for 16 months in French oak; 45% new. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Made entirely from the highest and most exposed portion of our vineyard composed of limestone which reveals a classic and dense Pinot Noir profile of black cherry, roasted rhubarb, and fresh leather. This will no doubt be another timeless example of our flagship wine.

SOILS:

Monterey shaly loams with dolomitic limestone. This vineyard is at our highest elevation and is pummeled constantly by strong onshore winds.
