Tasting Notes:

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir - 2018
Bright cherry, cranberry, and raspberry aromas with hints of dill, fennel, and spice. The bouquet is rounded out with sweet vanilla and berry flavors, with a balanced and elegant finish. This very approachable wine offers mouth-filling, yet soft, tannins. Ripe fruit flavors are complemented by bright acidity and a gentle oak mid-palate.

Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir - 2017
Bold and luxurious, this wine envelopes the senses with Bing cherry,
cranberry, and raspberry aromas alongside a welcoming savory spice.
Subtle earthiness and hints of pine needle and cardamon sing with
balanced, yet bright, fruit and acidity. The palate provides a rich
character of intense cherry and raspberry flavors, complemented by a
warm spice mid-palate, brought on by the French Oak barrels.

Pairing Notes:

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir - 2018
Our 2018 Pinot Noir was hand-picked, sorted, destemmed and put into
open top fermenters, and was cold-soaked for 5-days. It was then
fermented, pressed, and stored in French Oak barrels. In addition to
growing these grapes on our Estate, we acquired fruit from a few local,
family vineyards.

Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir - 2017
Our 2017 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir was hand-picked, sorted and
put into open top fermenters, then cold-soaked for 5-days. It was then
fermented, gently pressed, and aged in French Oak barrels.

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir - 2018
It was another remarkable vintage for Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. A
fairly dry winter gave way to a wet early spring, delaying budbreak in the
vineyards but providing ample mositure for our 2018 crop. Consistent and
mild conditions during bloom and throughout the early growing season,
along with a cooler than normal August, led to slow ripening and a later
harvest. This long hang-time allowed for full flavor development.

Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir - 2017
In 2017, the Santa Lucia Highlands experienced much needed precipitation
from winter and spring rains. This ample precipitation from the prior year
thankfully set-up moisture reserves to be able to handle unusual warmth
leading into Labor Day weekend. Typically cool, vineyards in the area
experienced record heat waves pushing harvest up earlier than anticipated.
Despite an earlier harvest, fruit quality remained exceptional throughout
the region.
