Our exploration has taken us to the storied vineyards of California’s Russian River Valley, where clockwork fog and Goldridge sandy loam soils have contributed to a Pinot Noir with beautiful, high-tone red fruit flavors of strawberry, cherry and cranberry and enticing hints of orange-cinnamon spice.

Winemaker Notes
This is a polished, seamless wine that strikes a balance between elegance and intensity, offering lush red and black fruit aromas, as well as oak-inspired notes of baking spices, vanilla and clove. On the palate, it combines excellent acidity with good weight and fruit, delivering abundant blackberry and raspberry layers, as well as hints of cola, leather and white pepper.
Production
Though the beginning of the growing season was cold and wet, we had a successful bloom and set. Because the cool weather continued into summer, we applied extensive canopy management and vineyard floor cultivation, with little-to-no irrigation. After heat spikes in late August and early September, the end of the season was nice and temperate, and we were able to harvest ripe, high-quality fruit before any rain events. Despite its challenges, 2010 proved excellent for cool-climate winegrowing, delivering elegant wines with depth of flavor and superb balance at relatively low Brix.
