2015 Huckleberry's Vineyard, Green Valley

Add To Cart
$95.00 per Bottle


 Bill and Lauren Hipp, along with their dogs Huckleberry and Gracie, farm this vineyard on the edge of the Sonoma Coast appellation in the Green Valley of Russian River Valley, just northwest of the small town of Graton. This pocket-sized parcel sits on classic Gold Ridge soils. The closely-spaced vineyard is managed entirely by hand (Bill’s and Lauren’s!) and the attention to detail translates to the wine. And it's less than an acre! We wish we could make more than just a few barrels.

Tasting Notes

Mmmmmmm, a bright bouquet of raspberry, cherry, red licorice, sarsaparilla, vanilla and a hint of red cinnamon heart candies wafts up from the glass. This Pinot has wonderful high notes, round texture and tight structure with flavors of cranberry, plum, Asian spice and bramble; it’s lively, sassy, juicy and showing a very long life ahead.
