Certified Organic vineyard that gives us small yields and gorgeous Pinots... planted in 1994 to clay loam soils, low elevation, in the heart of Carneros with cold, brisk winds; the perfect place for stunning Pinot noir!

Tasting Notes

The bouquet is a deep, well-integrated symphony of notes – licorice, black cherry with vanilla custard, a hint of briar, hay, and redwood bark. The flavors are bold, and comforting nips of raspberry, cherry, and dark plum yield to spicy cranberry on the mid-palate. The texture is built of silky tannins akin to the lush feel of high thread count sheets on skin, and the finish lingers and lingers.
