About

FROM THE WINEMAKER

“In the glass, beautiful aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry, violet, and petrichor narrate our Small Block Pinot Noir. A silky round entry with a backbone of ample acidity, typical of Anderson Valley, frames the wine with vibrant flavors that mirror the aromas. Complex and well-structured, this fruit-forward wine lends to a long and pleasing finish.”

- Stephanie Pope, Winemaker

VINTAGE NOTES

Each vintage presents a unique set of conditions, and we approach every year ready to face the challenge. Vintage 2019 began slightly later than normal in some areas, but nonetheless delivered superb results. Spring was marked by occasional rains, which brought welcome soil saturation, and cooler temperatures, which allowed fruit to mature at a steady pace. Summer helped the grapevines to ripen and catch up from their late start. The warm days and cool nights of the fall allowed gradual sugar accumulation and longer hang times, promising fruit of the highest quality with structural beauty from balanced tannin, sugar and acid levels. Harvest began slightly later than normal in some areas with fruit picked at its peak, promising exceptional flavor in bottle.

RECOMMENDED PAIRINGS

"Pinot Noir is a classic partner with Sonoma duck breast or Sonoma’s famed CK Lamb. Mushroom risotto pairs wonderfully. Soft Brie, Camembert, Gruyere and goat cheeses are my go to selections."

– Chad Hendrickson, Executive Chef
