Winemaker Jon Phillips Notes
The grapes for this wine come from a small hand tended vineyard in the Los Carneros region of Sonoma County. Each grape cluster is individually selected for quality, to produce an intensely rich and opulent wine.

Tasting Notes: Our Los Carneros Pinot Noir continues to surprise because it is very different from the Carneros Pinots that were crafted ten years ago. Full flavors of strawberries with an earthiness and hints of tar and tobacco make this wine seductive and as alluring as those Pinot specimens found across the sea in France. This being California, we are blessed by a long growing season, allowing our Pinot Noir to become fully mature; however, unlike some California Pinot Noirs, we don’t hide our wonderful flavor ...more... s with an abundance of oak. Instead we deploy the same barrel aging practices that we do for our Chardonnay; only using two and three year old French oak to add a beautifully balanced component without adding an oaky flavor.
