Production Notes
We harvest our grapes based on the ripeness of the tannins. For Pinot Noir this usually occurs between 24.5-27.0 Brix with the 2012 harvest. The clusters were then gently de-stemmed with no crushing. The must was cold-soaked in open-top fermenters for four days. Each tank was manually punched down throughout maceration. Upon completion of primary fermentation and maceration, the free-run wine was transferred to tank for settling. Next, the individual lots were racked to barrels and aged for 16 months prior to blending and bottling.
Vineyard Notes
There’s only one way to describe the Rancho Santa Rosa Vineyard: serene. Located in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA of Santa Barbara County, these stunning hillsides feature vines that climb from 500 to 1,000 feet above sea level. The soils are marine-based and the weather is consistently cool thanks to moist ocean breezes that sweep the property daily. The vineyard is farmed with the painstaking care and attention usually associated with much smaller properties. In fact, this vineyard was originally conceived as a series of individual micro-vineyards delineated by soil, exposure, elevation, grade, rootstock and clone. 2013 was an abundant vintage with mild rain during the first part of spring and only a few incidents of frost before bud break. With no heat waves of consequence, this was a very moderate growing season. Conditions remained ideal from bloom to set with the typical foggy mornings and afternoon winds that sweep through the Sta. Rita Hills. The yields were high in quality and quantity, emulating the 2012 vintage, with harvest lasting from September 5th – November 5th, 2013.
