Winemaker Alessio Carli Notes
Our Pinot Noir comes from vines that are planted in the upper valley benchlands of our estate. With an elevation of approximately 1100 feet, the grapes benefit from a maritime climate and ideal soils for growing expressive Pinot Noir. The resulting wine has superb acidity and balance allowing complex flavor characteristics to emerge. This vintage was cold soaked for 3 days and received three weeks of extended skin contact after fermentation. The wine was then aged for 14 months in French oak to concentrate the flavors and add layers of vanilla and toasty oak.

Tasting Notes
This first vintage of estate grown Pinot Noir, made using grapes from our 4th leaf, is an ideal reflection of our terroir. It begins with a beautiful ...more... bouquet of subtle lavender and moves to elegant fruit flavors of wild strawberries, raspberries and Bing cherries all laced with a subtle earthiness that is synonymous with the Cienega Valley and the surrounding northern Central Coast Appellation. Watch this wine as it continues to improve with age!
