The third release of this single vineyard Pinot Noir comes from our coldest estate vineyard. This magnificent property is perched on a ridge top near the town of Freestone, located just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean in the Sonoma Coast AVA. We have planted both heirloom and Dijon clones of Pinot Noir that produce very small clusters that encourage early ripening.
The grapes are harvested at night, and then rigorously hand sorted prior to destemming into open top fermenters. Cold soaked for 8 days, indigenous yeast fermentation for almost two weeks. 45% new French Oak.
