Wine Maker Notes
Our Pinot Noir vineyards are planted in the Petaluma Gap blocks of the Sonoma Coast appellation, and on a hillside with southwestern exposure on our Estate in Sonoma-Carneros. The PetGap vineyards vary from shallow hillsides to deeper and richer valley plantings. The Carneros vineyards are planted in rocky soil and produce small but intensely-flavored yields. These cool growing regions are known for producing some ofCalifornia’s finest Pinot Noir.
This Pinot Noir has good body and deep color. True to the varietal, it has notes of spearmint and lilac, and subtle flavors of vanilla from oak aging. This complex and versatile wine pairs well with foods like lamb, braised meats, or grilled salmon.
