Excellent structure, bold aromas, bright acidity and silky tanins with red fruit aromas of raspberries, rhubarb, and strawberries and an intriguing earthy quality.

Winemaker Notes
The fruit for our 2013 Pinot Noir came from vines planted in the famed Sta. Rita Hills growing region in 2009. This wine displays red fruit aromas of raspberries, rhubarb, and strawberries with an intriguing earthy quality. These bold aromas carry through to the palate with silky tannins balanced by bright acidity, offering excellent structure.

Production Notes
The 2013 growing season was one of the most amazing we have seen in the last several years. Despite modest rainfall, the timing of the fruit development was ideal. Bud break began in the second week of March and a warm spring led to slightly earlier bloom and fruit set. The weather provided our vines with the opportunity to grow without the stress of an extreme environment, and allowed for optimal staggered ripening of each varietal.
