Vinification and maturation
Blending grapes from four estate vineyards, we are dedicated to crafting winets of refinement and elegance from a palette of terroir-inspired fruit. Reflecting the Mendocino Coast’s marine influences, sites and soils, these grapes create sublime and sophisticated Pinot Noir. To enhance depth and complexity, we select a small percentage of the finest fruit for each vintage before applying small- lot winemaking techniques.

The entry offers an intriguing hint of smoke and peppercorns that carry though to a mid-palate filled with silky tannins and cherry and raspberry flavors. On the finish, oak- inspired overtones of coffee and baking spice mingle with leather and fruit bringing this wine to a long, satisfying conclusion.
