This is our inaugural release from this drop-dead gorgeous vineyard. Located in an ideal location at the confluence of where the Petaluma Wind Gap intersects with Sonoma Mountain, this site has that perfect combination of warm windy days and cold nights. Just up the slope from Gap’s Crown Vineyard and just slightly south but still on the same ridge as Black-Knight Vineyard, this is a neighborhood where we believe Pinot Noir excels in California. We really could not be more pleased with the quality of this knockout Pinot Noir.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Intensely fruited with red berries galore, this light cranberry colored transparent Pinot is packed full of anything red you can think of. Spicy with cinnamon-stick, tangerine peel, Bosch Pears and the ripest red-raspberries you have ever smelled. In the mouth this has supple fruit, which is densely concentrated, incredibly vibrant and zesty with natural acidity, but mostly just sexy and seductive with pure Pinot flavors. Think Corton Rougeā€¦
