The complexity of our 2019 Pinot Noir comes from two clones grown in two locales on the chilly Sonoma Coast, a terrific spot for exemplary cool-climate Pinot Noir. Both sites were hand-pruned and picked. The soils in these low yielding, wind-swept sites range from the famed “Goldridge” to shallow gravelly loams. Each site and clone provided different aromas, flavors & structure and we developed the blend from these diverse components. The first site, representing 85% of the vintage, is situated northwest of Forestville and offers one of our favorite clones “115” and which contributes richness and depth. The second site is less than seven miles from the coast, west of Sebastopol at an elevation of almost 700 feet with 15 degree slope. It was planted in 2001 to clone Pommard 5 which contributes zippy freshness and smooth tannins. The second site represents 15% of the vintage.
