Farmed off the estate's Annadel Gap Vineyard, along with parcels sourced from the Petaluma Gap's Terra de Promissio Vineyard, the wine was aged 18 months in 41% new French oak and bottled unfiltered. Fresh red cherry aromas, chocolate, and cinnamon lead to a palate that is juicy to its core. Caramel apple, tomato leaf, lavender, and cranberry are vibrant notes. A generous mouthfeel opens up to baking spices and backed by beetroot and rhubarb. Complex and delicious.


95 Pts - Tasting Panel Magazine

The appellation 2019 Pinot Noir is brilliant, and I like it every bit as much as many of the more expensive single vineyards. Spiced red fruits, loamy earth, leather, and subtle smoke notes give way to a medium-bodied, textured, incredibly charming Pinot Noir that already offers pleasure yet has the balance to keep for at least 7-8 years.

Vineyard Notes
From warm sunny days, to cooler fog covered evenings, Sonoma County's geography and climate influences each vineyard. The grapes for this Pinot Noir were selected primarily from the floor of the Sonoma Valley where unique terroir provides varied soils and ideal growing conditions.
Winemaker Notes
Each Pinot Noir clone was hand-harvested individually at night. The fruit was hand sorted and fermented individually separated by clone. 6 days cold soak, gentle punch downs 1-3 times daily, 14-20 days on skins and gently basket pressed.
