The most profound contributing factor to the outstanding quality of our California Pinot Noir, and the integrity to its varietal, is the diversity of its sourcing. Because it is not relegated to a single county or growing region, we are given the opportunity to source from the best Pinot Noir regions throughout the state. From the warmer regions of the Central Coast, to the foggy cool valleys of our Northern Coast, each individual lot promotes the intense berry and spice flflavors quintessential to Pinot Noir.
From start to fifinish, 2018 was a very steady season, offffering weather that was reminiscent of years prior to drought. Higher than average yields and excellent quality brought about a fruitful harvest beginning in late August.
Vivid notes of cranberry, raspberry and dark cherry, with cola and toasted oak.
Generous and fruit forward. Pairs perfectly with tangy pulled pork and buttermilk cornbread.

This is very clean and bright with aromas and flavors of sliced plums and lemons. Hint of watermelon. Medium body, fine tannins and a crisp and dry finish. A vivid and easy pinot noir. Drink now. Screw cap. - James Suckling 91 points
Pale ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir has a nose of red cherries, cranberries, cinnamon stick and underbrush with spicy accents. The light-bodied palate is simple and juicy with a soft structure. 5,000 cases produced. - Robert Parker 88 points
