Wine Description

After two somewhat challenging (but ultimately rewarding) years, 2012 was an absolute dream vintage. The spring gave us a nice fruit set followed by a moderately warm summer with typically cool mornings and evenings. September brought no real heat spikes or moisture which allowed us to pretty much harvest ultra pure, clean fruit at our leisure. Our focus remains on cooler, coastal influenced vineyards in and around Occidental, Sebastopol, and the Fort Ross-Seaview areas, where we find clarity, focus, and harmony (for both us and the wine). Even more than in 2011, the Sonoma County Pinot Noir became the fortunate benefactor of our expanding single vineyard offerings. In 2012, declassified barrels from Coastlands, Emmaline, Jack Hill, Rice-Spivak, Tina Marie, Hellenthal, Hurst, Bohemian, and Sullivan Vineyards are all included in the final Sonoma County blend.

    Amazing jammy flavor with cherry and blackberry undertones. Easy drinking and better as it breathed!

    Not too tart, a bit sweet, easy to drink as it isn't too overwhelming.
