Winemaker Notes
Our 2013 Barrel Select Pinot Noir is made from only the best hand selected fruit harvested from our Rancho Santa Rosa Vineyard. A vibrant and bold Pinot Noir created for the French oak connoisseur, it displays vivacious fruit notes accented by floral carnation, violet, and toasted oak. This wine has tremendous length with great tannin structure and a lingering finish of ripe pomegranate, dusty cedar, and freshly zested nutmeg.

Production Notes
We harvest our grapes based on the ripeness of the tannins. The fruit was hand-picked and hand-sorted in the vineyard in the cool morning hours to preserve the aromatics. 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 daily 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 and aged for 16 months in 100% new French oak prior to bottling.
Vineyard Notes
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.
