Through intensively farming each vineyard site, our intent is to maximize the character and individuality of each wine and we do so by utilizing the most progressive viticultural techniques.
Harvested at night, the fruit was rigorously hand sorted prior to destemming and then berry selected before open top fermentation. Cold soaked for 8 days followed by indigenous yeast fermentation for more than two weeks. This blend is a collection of heirloom clones of Pinot Noir like Calera, Swan, Pommard, Mt. Eden, and Chalone as well as newer French selections like Dijon 777 & 943. Barrel aged in 37% new French Oak for 16 months.
