Wine Maker Notes
Chosen for their combination of maritime influences, elevation and nighttime cool temperatures, these three vineyard sites confirm the old adage that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Anderson Valley provides elegant forward fruit and refined aromatics while Potter Valley and Laytonville fruit give the blend a slightly masculine edge and length. The result? A true Mendocino County Pinot Noir. Whenever possible we work with vineyards that are certified organic, biodynamic or at the very least use sustainable farming and management practices. Mendocino is universally recognized as the Mecca of organic grape growing in California and where residents voted in 2004 to become a GMO-free county.
