We are beginning to release our 2019 Pinot Noirs. The 2019's are the perfect example of what California can do with the grape when the goal is balance. The 2019 harvest was marked by a cool spring, warm summer temperatures followed by a cool harvest with spots of rain. It was hard to believe this is California and not Oregon! So, while this allowed the fruit to hang on the vines well into October it did test our patience. These wine are elegant, but still have to core of rich fruit that our style is characterised by. Our 2021 Spring release includes some of our Sonoma wines. In the Fall of 2021 you will be seeing our wines from Anderson Valley and Chalone. We hope you love them. We do!
