Planted in 1970, this spectacular Pinot Noir Vineyard would be considered old by California standards. Farmed organically and with minimal irrigation, these gnarled vines produce small and compact clusters with painfully low yields of just over 1 ton per acre. Harvested at night, the fruit was rigorously hand sorted prior to destemming and then berry selected before open top fermentation. A medium-ruby color is followed by gorgeously intense aromas of spring flowers, Queen Anne cherries, and intense mineral notes. Year after year this site has the hallmark of an ethereally-floral aromatic quality, with sensual texture and an impressive length.
