Winemaker Tom Stutz Notes
The Sleepy Hollow Vineyard, one of the most northerly sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation, has provided Pinot Noir for La Rochelle since 2003 and for nearly 20 years before that to my family’s label, Mirassou Vineyards. Highlighted by very intense black fruit, soy, forest floor, and orange oil aromas, the wines made from this site are some of the “biggest” we produce. Sleepy Hollow “A” is home to a variety of clones, of which we use two in the 2008 vintage: the heritage Martini clone and 113, a Dijon offering.
