About The Vineyard

This Pinot Noir Grows in one of the coolest areas of the Napa Valley. It is in a low swale surrounded by Pinot that is grown for sparkling wine production (Clone 777). This lucky Pinot Noir gets midday sun but is not exposed to the most extreme late afternoon sunshine, so it is able to ripen evenly without getting too hot.

Winemaker Notes

“Our berries underwent a 4-day cold soak with daily hand mixes, and then we allowed fermentation to begin with the yeast naturally occurring in this Pinot’s terroir, to harness all the wild aromatics we can get from the flor yeasts that live among our vines. Then we finished the Pinot off with a traditional Syrah yeast. Our Pinot is particularly savory with cedar, vanilla, and star anise aromas. Baking spices, vanilla, red fruit (cherry, raspberry) and black (blackberry, black cherry) flavors, and pepper coat the pallet. All to create a very fun and lively glass of Pinot!” – Winemaker Shaina Harding

Aging: 33% New French Oak, 33% 1-year French Oak, 33% neutral French Oak
