This Anderson Valley Pinot Noir has notes of blueberry, red earth, and nutmeg spice with hints of violet, toffee and oolong tea. It has a silky and generous entry, slate-like minerality, and muscular tannin on the finish – a testament to high altitude winegrowing.

Wine Profile

production notes

Grape clusters hand-sorted and 100% de-stemmed, with 60% whole berries gravity-fed into small open top fermenters. Manually punched down 2-3 times/day. Cold-soaked for 6-7 days and fermented for a total of 14-16 days on skins.

tasting notes

Vibrant blueberry-strawberry fruit intertwines with aromas of dark-red rose, maple, licorice, and toasted hazelnut. On the palate, juicy raspberry, dark cocoa, and pennyroyal flavors emerge.

Delicately-balanced acidity and crystalline minerality lead into a firmly structured finish.

vineyard notes

This spectacular vineyard is perched high above Boonville in the hills of Anderson Valley, just 18 miles from the Pacific coastline. Boone Ridge is a veritable aerie, with sweeping views of the valley below.

A wide array of aspects in the vineyard creates multiple mesoclimates, each displaying unique characteristics as these relatively young vines continue to age.
