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 flavors quintessential to Pinot Noir.
Starting with rain during bloom, 2019 transitioned into a steady, slow to warm spring. Temperate throughout the summer, offering only a couple intermittent heat spikes. Average yields and incredible quality with harvest beginning in early 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.

Very pretty pinot with dried strawberries, flflowers and cedar on the nose, following through to a medium to full body with a firm, silky-textured palate and a long, creamy finish. Attractive texture. Drink or hold. Screw cap. - James Suckling 92 points
